First Edition. First Impression, preceding both the US and UK editions by two years. Small octavo (16.75cm); pictorial card wrappers; ,9-316,pp. Signed by the author on the title page. Sunning to spine, modest edgewear, with an armorial bookplate on verso of front wrapper, some tanning to text edges, and faint foxing to upper edge and inner wrappers; Very Good+. An early novel by the highy-regarded Mexican author and a seminal work in the Latin American Boom, centered around a corrupt politician and soldier, lying on his deathbed and recalling the many events which shaped his life, from the Mexican Revolution to the founding of the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI). While the colophon supplies an initial printing of 15,000 copies, the book was cheaply made and now scarce, particularly signed.
