Description:
London: Jonathan Cape, 1969. First UK edition. Hardcover. Fine/very fine. An odd collection of tales about the creation of the universe and of human beings. Quirky fun. Calvino is one of the European Magic Realists who are generally treated as "too good to be science fiction". Ah well. This is a very nice copy, with the only notable flaw being a discreet previous owner's name and date/place of purchase on the front free endpaper. Top edge stained blue, jacket slightly sunfaded on spine (unclipped). A clean, nice copy of a modern classic. TW from WFW
