Chronicle of a Death Foretold. Translated by Gregory Rabassa.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1983 - Octavo. Original brown cloth, title to spine silver and front board blind. With the dust jacket. Light spotting to top edge; an excellent copy in the dust jacket. First US edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the epigraph, "Par Murray, Gabriel. '89." From the library of the Irish book collector Dr Philip Murray. In his book, The Adventures of a Book Collector (2011), Murray writes: "I had heard that the Mexican postal system is one of the most unreliable anywhere in the world, but I decided to chance it and sent eleven books nearly a year went by without any further word. I was certain my luck had run out and I would never see my copies again . the return package had burst open and had had to be repacked. All the books were inscribed and the author had drawn various images in some of them, so it was worth the wait". It was first published the preceding year in the UK and originally published in Spain under the title Crónica de una muerte anunciada in 1981. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
