Il nome della rosa [Signed] [The Name of the Rose]
Milano: Bompiani, 1980. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (some of the common toning to the pages due to the type of paper used to produce the book, prior owner's neat gift presentation to the front free endpaper, some spotting to the rear board), in a virtually Fine dust jacket (quite light wear, short crease line to the rear flap's lower left corner), SIGNED BY UMBERTO ECO on the title page. The copyright page properly states "I edizione settembre 1980" and carries the “SIAE 1 edizione sticker, numbered 0012974”. The dust jacket's rear flap shows the correct price of “L. 10.000 / IVA compresa”. An historical murder mystery set in Italian monastery in the year 1327 and Eco's debut novel, the novel combines semiotics, biblical analysis, medieval studies, and literary theory. [Eco is a semiotician of the first order and a University Professor, essayist, philosopher, literary critic, and novelist.] In the story, a Franciscan friar, William of Baskerville, and his novice Adso of Melk -- who narrates the story, arrive at an Italian monastery to attend a theological disputation only to find the monastery disturbed by a recent suicide. A number of other monks then die under mysterious circumstances and William is asked to conduct an investigation. The novel provided the basis for the 1986 movie of the same name starring Sean Connery as William of Baskerville and Christian Slater as Adso of Melk. Signed copies of the work are quite scarce. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY UMBERTO ECO. SCARCE.
