El amor en los tiempos del Cólera
Bogotá: Editorial Oveja Negra, 1985 First edition, limited issue of 1,000 copies. Signed by García Márquez and notarized by Colombian authorities to limitation page. Publisher's white boards, lettered in black to spine, in the original white dust jacket lettered in black, with steamboat illustration to front panel and artistic illustration of the author to rear panel. A bright near fine copy with a touch of soiling and bumping to extremities, as well as light toning to page edges; dust jacket lightly soiled with wear and creasing to edges, and with some closed tears and a few areas of loss to bottom edge, none affecting text. Overall, a pleasing copy of this scarce true first edition. El amor en los tiempos del cólera (Love in the Time of Cholera) focuses on the relationship of three members of a love triangle over the course of time. Based on the author's parents' relationship, the plot is divided into six parts, with two sections each for the three main stages of life: youth, adulthood, and old age. This volume is part of an advanced printing of 1,000 special edition copies signed by García Márquez, the proceeds of which were donated to the survivors of the 1985 Armero Tragedy in Colombia. During this catastrophic event, over 20,000 people died in the eruption of the volcano Nevado del Ruiz, including the majority of the population of Armero, a city built on the hardened remains of an earlier eruption. García Márquez, a Colombian nationalist and political activist, was living outside of the country at the time of the tragedy, having fled government persecution for his support of a radical military group. Although he did not return when he was invited back in 1982, Márquez never gave up his effort to improve the political climate and quality of life in Colombia. . Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
