Gabriel Garcia Marquez - One Hundred Years of Solitude - True First Edition - SOLD

True First Edition of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude in a first state dust jacket, published by Harper & Row in 1970. Stated First Edition with no number row on last leaf and with the exclamation point ending the first paragraph of dust jacket copy. Unclipped dust jacket shows a clean tear at top front with some small chips along edges and head/tail of spine. Some dampstaining to inside of jacket down spine and along bottom back which has not rippled and only barely shows through at bottom back. Jacket is now protected in a removable Brodart cover (removed for photos). Bottom back board shows shows some light rippling and dampstaining at corner, but again this does bleed through into book's interior. Spot to fore-edge. Boards are square. Binding is sound and pages are unmarked. Not an ex-library copy.
