Very good copy of stated first American edition in very good minus mylared, price clipped dust jacket. Dampstain to back board, crinkled pages for much of the book (sounds worse than it is), however, the very tight text block indicates that book has not been read. Slight spine slant, dust jacket lettering has bled through to the front board. Front board pulling away from text block, so possible ex library, but no other indications that this was a library book. Dust jacket is price clipped, sunned, chipped at all corners, has a few closed tears and has a wrinkle to back cover. Blue cloth boards with gold lettering on spine. Blindstamped title of book on cover. Five Carpentier stories. 179 pp. Carpentier coined the term "magical realism." We specialize in Latin American literature in translation.
