The Enchantress Of Florence

By Rushdie, Salman




A tall, yellow-haired, young European traveler calling himself "Mogor dell'Amore," the Mughal of Love, arrives at the court of the Emperor Akbar, lord of the great Mughal empire, with a tale to tell that begins to obsess the imperial capital, a tale about a mysterious woman, a great beauty believed to possess powers of enchantment and sorcery, and her impossible journey to the far-off city of Florence.The Enchantress of Florence is the story of a woman attempting to command her own destiny in a man's world. It is the story of two cities, unknown to each other, at the height of their powers--the hedonistic Mughal capital, in which the brilliant Akbar the Great wrestles daily with questions of belief, desire, and the treachery of his sons, and the equally sensual city of Florence during the High Renaissance, where Niccolo Machiavelli takes a starring role as he learns, the hard way, about the true brutality of power.Vivid, gripping, irreverent, bawdy, profoundly moving, and completely absorbing, The Enchantress of Florence is a dazzling book full of wonders by one of the world's most important living writers.From the Hardcover edition.

Signed by author on title page in black fountain ink. tall, yellow-haired young European traveller calling himself 'Mogor dell'Amore', the Mughal of Love, arrives at the court of the real Grand Mughal, the Emperor Akbar, with a tale to tell that begins to obsess the whole imperial capital. The stranger claims to be the child of a lost Mughal princess, the youngest sister of Akbar's grandfather Babar: Qara Koz, 'Lady Black Eyes', a great beauty believed to possess powers of enchantment and sorcery, who is taken captive first by an Uzbek warlord, then by the Shah of Persia, and finally becomes the lover of a certain Argalia, a Florentine soldier of fortune, commander of the armies of the Ottoman Sultan. When Argalia returns home with his Mughal mistress the city is mesmerized by her presence, and much trouble ensues."The Enchantress of Florence" is the story of a woman attempting to command her own destiny in a man's world. It brings together two cities that barely know each other - the hedonistic Mughal capital, in which the brilliant emperor wrestles daily with questions of belief, desire and the treachery of sons, and the equally sensual Florentine world of powerful courtesans, humanist philosophy and inhuman torture, where Argalia's boyhood friend "il Machia" - Niccolr Machiavelli - is learning, the hard way, about the true brutality of power. These two worlds, so far apart, turn out to be uncannily alike, and the enchantments of women hold sway over them both. But is Mogor's story true? And if so, then what happened to the lost princess? And if he's a liar, must he die? THE ENCHANTRESS OF FLORENCE was nominated for The Man Booker Prize Best Novel. New, unread, first edition, first printing, in new, mylar-protected dust jacket. {Not remainder-marked or price-clipped} L130?BUND

Rushdie, Salman

London, England: Jonathan Cape, 2008. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. London, England: Jonathan Cape, 2008. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 356 pages. The author's tenth novel. One of Salman Rushdie's finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Salman Rushdie's "The Enchantress of Florence". Rushdie at his absolute, insolent best. "Trying to describe a Rushdie novel is like trying to describe a piece of music to someone who has never heard it. You can fumble with a plot summary, but you won't be able to convey the wonder of his dazzling prose or the imaginative complexity of his vision. At its heart, 'The Enchantress of Florence' is about the power of the story, whether it is the imagined life of a Mughal queen or the devastating secret held by a silver-tongued Florentine. Make no mistake, it is Rushdie who is the true enchanter of this story, conjuring readers into his gilded fairy tale from the very first sentence. At once bawdy, gorgeous, gory, and hilarious, a study in contradiction, incarnated in its philosopher-king, who detests his bloodthirsty heritage even while he carries it out. Full of rich sentences running nearly the length of a page. Blends fact and fable into a challenging and satisfying read" (Daphne Durham). An absolute "must-have" title for Salman Rushdie collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Salman Rushdie. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (British) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Precedes and should NOT be confused with the American Edition. A scarce signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Booker Prize in 1981 for "Midnight's Children", which was also selected as "The Booker of Bookers" in 1993, the best of all previous winners. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SALMAN RUSHDIE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0224061631.
