First Printing. The correct First in Spanish, preceding both the American and British editions by a period of two years. A Near Fine copy in illustrated wrappers. Faint lean and gentle sunning to the spine, else a remarkably sharp, clean copy, inscribed by Fuentes to another bookseller after a chance meeting in a Mexico City bookshop. While the colophon states an initial printing of 15,000 copies, the book was cheaply made and now scarce, particularly so in collectable condition. An early novel of the boom in Latin American literature, the author's most important work, and the only inscribed copy of this title we have seen or handled.
