(Santafé de Bogotá), Editorial Norma, (1997). The thirtieth anniversary edition of the Nobel Prize winner's masterwork, one of the most important novels of the 20th century, which introduced "magical realism" to a wide audience and helped bring the boom in Latin American literature to this country when it was published in the U.S. in 1970. At the end of the 1970s this book was voted by the editors of The New York Times Book Review to be not only the best book published in the previous ten years but the one most likely to still be read and to still be important one hundred years hence. Copy #XLV of 100 Roman-numeraled copies signed by the author. Bound in full leather with raised spine bands. Fine in slipcase, still shrinkwrapped. A true high spot of twentieth century world literature, an uncommon signature (Garcia Marquez limited his travels to the U.S. after a State Department ban imposed on him because of his friendship with then-Cuban leader Fidel Castro), and a rare edition of one of the defining books of the century: the only signed limited edition of this title.
