Cien Años de Soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude); [with:] Cronica de una muerte anunciada (Chronicle of a Death Foretold)
Buenos Aires: Editorial Sudamericana, 1967/Bogota-Colombia: Editorial La Oveja Negra, 1981. Buenos Aires: Editorial Sudamericana, 1967/Bogota-Colombia: Editorial La Oveja Negra,, 1981. 2 works together, octavo. Cien años: perfect bound octavo; white card wrappers as issued, pictorial decoration to front wrapper in black, orange, and blue, titles to spine and text to rear wrapper in black. Extremities rubbed, spine creased and rolled, wear and some small marks to rear wrapper, leaves tanned at margins but otherwise clean; a very good copy. Cronica: original navy boards, titles to spine in white. With the dust jacket. Ends and corners nicked, mild toning to margins of leaves, but an excellent copy in the somewhat chipped jacket. Both copies warmly and wittily inscribed by Marquez in 1981, evidently to an old girlfriend and her husband, the first on the first blank "Para Silvia, de mi corazón cuando me quería a mí y no a ese hombre; con toda mi alma de antes, GABM 1981" ("To Silvia, from the bottom of my heart, when she used to love me and not that man; with all my erstwhile love, GABM 1981"), and the second on the dedication page, "Para Silvia y Rodolfo, este libro que los persigue desde hace mucho tiempo por todos los aeropuertos del mundo; con un abrazo grande, GABM.Z 81" ("To Silvia and Rodolfo, this book that has been chasing you for a long time through all the world's airports, with a big hug, GABM.Z 81"). Cien años de soledad is the true first edition in the correctly illustrated wrappers (with the ship and three yellow flowers, changed in later printings at Marquez's insistence). Cronica de una muerte anunciada is the Colombian first edition, first published simultaneously in Colombia, Mexico, and Spain (on the "follow the flag" principle, the Colombian is the most desirable).
