First American edition of the author’s work that ranks as one of the great novels of the last half of the twentieth century. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed and dated by Gabriel Garcia Marquez on the dedication page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.

"This shining and heartbreaking novel may be one of the greatest love stories ever told," wrote the New York Times. It's a "sumptuous book[with] major themes of love, death, the torments of memory, the inexorability of old age" (The Washington Post). The English-language movie adaptation was released in 2007, starring Academy Award-nominated Brazilian actress Fernanda Montenegro.
