Garcia Marquez, Gabriel

NY and Bogota: Harper & Row, Knopf, LEC, Grupo Editorial Norma (1968-2005)., 1968. Gabriel Garcia Marquez Collection. 16 First editions all INSCRIBED: An outstanding collection of 16 first editions of the Nobel Laureate all variously INSCRIBED to the collector, Richard Mattie by Garcia Marquez. No One Writes to the Colonel and Other Stories; One Hundred Years of Solitude; Innocent Erendira; In Evil Hour; Chronicle of a Death Foretold; The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor; Clandestine in Chile; Love in the Time of Cholera; The General in His Labyrinth; Strange Pilgrims; Love and Other Demons; News of a Kidnapping; Living to Tell the Tale; Memories of My Melancholy Whores; Vivir para contarla; One Hundred Years of Solitude LEC. This collection was put together by the highly resourceful Richard Mattie between the years of 1997 and 2005 with the assistance of a number of contacts in Mexico who had close connection with Garcia Marquez. All 16 books are personally inscribed to Mattie by Garcia Marquez, and, noteworthy, the copy of the LEC of One Hundred Years of Solitude is inscribed in English, "To Richard, from his Friend." and is signed and dated 1998. Garcia Marquez rarely inscribed in English. Mattie said that Garcia Marquez commented that this was the first time he signed this book. All the books are first American editions with the exception of Vivir para cotarla which is the true first in Spanish, the Columbian edition published by Grupo Editorial Norma, Bogota, 2002. As every serious Garcia Marquez collectors fully knows, there are a great many highly suspect "signed" Garcia Marquez books on the internet and purchasing any without impeccable, serious provenance is a risky venture at best. Mattie was so diligent in his documentation that he kept every letter, fax, postal receipt, wire, and email (all printed out fully) from this close to 9 year difficult collecting venture. This 1" thick folder, entitled by Mattie "The Gabriel Garcia Marquez File 1997-2005" is included with this collection. Never have I seen such minutely detailed provenance. As a collection of inscribed Garcia Marquez titles in English translation, this is as close to a sine qua non statement as a contemporary collector might hope to come. All the books from Chronicle of a Death Foretold forward through Memories of My Melancholy Whores are tight, fine books in bright, fine DJs with the exception of Strange Pilgrims which has slight cloth discoloration at the base of the book. No One Writes to the Colonel has a partial name erasure top of the front free endpaper and some top edge foxing, else very good plus in a bright first issue DJ with a minuscule closed tear bottom of front panel else fine. One Hundred Years of Solitude is the first edition book in the first issue DJ with an exclamation mark at the end of the first front flap paragraph. There is a small contemporary inscription dated 1970 top of the half-title page in Spanish. The book has light cloth wear at the extremities else tight, very good plus in a very good plus price-intact DJ ($7.95) with some old tape residue verso of the jacket at the crown of the spine; the DJ has shallow edge wear, light rubbing and a tiny edge tear or two.. Inscribed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE - REVIEW COPY, WITH TLS FROM PUBLISHER LAID IN

García Márquez, Gabriel (novel); Rabassa, Gregory (translation)

New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1970. First American Edition. First Printing, one of 7,500 copies. Octavo; hunter green cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; variant with headband in olive green and yellow (no established priority); dustjacket; [xiii], 422pp, [1 blank]. Faint foxing to top edge, else Fine. Dustjacket is the so-called second state, with a "." instead of an excalamation mark at the end of the first paragraph on the front flap; price is unclipped, with some minor wear at spine ends, and a few very tiny nicks and tears to extremities; bright, very Near Fine example. A superlative copy of the Nobel Prize winner's masterpiece, and likely the most widely-read Spanish language novel aside from 'Don Quixote.' The present example is a review copy, with the publisher's typed slip laid in; the slip differs from other Harper & Row review slips from the same period, in that in states "IMPORTANT: please note that this is UNCORRECTED PROOF." Also laid into this copy is a brief, one page typed letter from Harper & Row publisher Cass Canfield, Jr. to Dr. Howard B. Gotlieb, former Director of Special Collections at Boston University. The letter is dated 21 October, 1969 - some four months prior to publication of the book - and mentions the enclosure of an advance proof of 'One Hundred Years of Solitude.' It isn't lost on us that the copy these materials came to us in is not an uncorrected proof (of which we presently know of exactly 2 copies). We can only surmise that these proof materials were placed into this copy of the book in-house; Canfield, whose business card is also laid into the book, may have decided that Gotlieb should receive a hardbound copy and not a paperbound proof, and thus would have placed the materials in one of the first hard copies manufactured. Evidence supporting copies in dustjacket with the "." on the front flap being printed prior to publication is discussed at length in Don Klein's 'Gabriel García Márquez: Una Bibliografía Descriptiva, Tomo II.' In it, Klein mentions that two editorial heads at Harper & Row received review copies directly from the printer, both in jackets ending in "." Additionally, the review copy received by translator Gregory Rabassa bore a jacket also ending in a "." and not the exclamation mark (p.635-636). And while we are fully cognisant that review materials often migrate from copy-to-copy within the trade, sufficient evidence is present that the migration here was more than likely the publisher's doing. The only such copy we have handled, the only other known to us being the bibliographer's copy. Klein E2.a.1.

Garcia Marquez, Gabriel

New York: Harper & Row, 1970. First English language edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. First printing in a first state dust jacket ending the first paragraph with an exclamation point. A Near Fine example of the book with "First Edition" stated on the copyright page and no number line on the final page.Gift inscription in ink to the half title. In a bright, Near Fine price clipped dust jacket with very trivial wear at the spine ends and corners. Along with "Love in the Time of Cholera," "One Hundred Years of Solitude" is considered Marquez' greatest work, and is the book that made his international reputation. First published in 1967 - and in English in 1970 -- the wide spanning story of the Buendia family would achieve incredible popularity and, in fact, be responsible for lifting the future Nobel Prize winner out of poverty as it would go on to sell more than 30,000,000 copies. Considered the ultimate expression of his style of magical realism, "One Hundred Years of Solitude" has won awards in numerous countries and was listed on Le Monde's list of the "100 Books of the Century." "He has also written a novel so filled with humor, rich detail and startling distortion that it brings to mind the best of Faulkner and Gunter Grass. It is a South American Genesis, an earthy piece of enchantment, more, as the narrator says of Macondo, 'an intricate stew of truth and mirages.'" (Contemporary New York Times Book Review).

One Hundred Years of Solitude [With Exclamation Mark!]

Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

New York: Harper and Row, 1970. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 422 pages. Perhaps greatest Latin American novel of the 20th century--the sort of book where most Spanish speaking booklovers can quote the opening line, "Muchos años después, frente al pelotón de fusilamiento, el coronel Aureliano Buendía había de recordar aquella tarde remota en que su padre lo llevó a conocer el hielo." [Translated here by Gregory Rabassa as "Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember than distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice."] In addition to being a great book, this book is a collector's favorite because of the two states of the dust jacket. In some copies, the first sentence of the jacket flap ends with "one of the most important novels ever written in Latin America!" Later printings of the jacket tone that sentiment down, replacing the exuberance of the exclamation mark with a more staid period. First editions are found with both the exclamation mark and the period. GGM's bibliographer Don Klein has done a lot of work on the question of the exclamation mark and has shown that most if not all of the review copies have the period (See Gabriel García Márquez: Una Bibliografía Descriptiva). What does that mean? In short, it's hard to say. It almost certainly does not mean that the first copies off the press had a period and someone at the printer changed it to an exclamation mark, only to change it back for the second printing. Besides, with modern printing presses, the first printed copies tend to end up at the bottom of the pile and it's much more likely that the review copies used jackets from the end of the press run. It's possible that the first jackets had exclamation marks and that error was fixed during the press run, but such changes are rare on modern, high speed presses like those used in 1970s. It's possible that the printer printed both variants at the same time (the final printing plate was almost certainly composed of multiple copies of the jacket). In any case, collectors have long preferred to have the "!" and since it only appears on some copies of the first printing, it is less common than the corrected period copies. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket, with the exclamation mark on the front flap. Small owner's name on the front flyleaf, some shelfwear to bottom edge of book. The jacket has some splits at the folds and a bit of loss at the spine end, but generally presents well. Overall, a solid copy of a legendary book.

One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Garcia Marquez, Gabriel.

New York:: Harper & Row,, 1970. . A Near Fine copy with just a hint of rubbing to the extremities in a Near Fine, bright, unclipped second issue dust jacket (with period) that has a touch of edge wear with a supplied green cloth slipcase. The story follows 100 years in the life of Macondo, a village founded by José Arcadio Buendía and occupied by descendants all sporting variations on their progenitor's name: his sons, José Arcadio and Aureliano, and grandsons, Aureliano José, Aureliano Segundo, and José Arcadio Segundo. Then there are the women--the two Úrsulas, a handful of Remedios, Fernanda, and Pilar--who struggle to remain grounded even as their menfolk build castles in the air. If it is possible for a novel to be highly comic and deeply tragic at the same time, then One Hundred Years of Solitude does the trick. Civil war rages throughout, hearts break, dreams shatter, and lives are lost, yet the effect is literary pentimento, with sorrow's outlines bleeding through the vibrant colors of García Márquez's magical realism..

One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

New York: Harper Collins, 2014. First edition of the re-issue of the Gabriel Garcia Marquez's masterpiece. Octavo, original half cloth. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. Signed by the translator, Gregory Rabassa on the title page, who has added the classic quote from this novel, "It's enough to know that you and I exist at this moment. Gregory Rabassa." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Guy Fleming. The slipcase is in near fine condition. "One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Colombia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31).
