El amor en los tiempos del cólera [Love in The Time of Cholera] by Gabriel García Márquez


Rare stated Spanish first edition; deluxe trade paperback with front and rear panels; deckle edged pages.  Unsure if the spanish language hardcover was released prior to this.  

Cover shows wear / some creasing.  Otherwise a tight, square copy that appears unread.   Pages are immaculate.  Reads as new.  

In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.
