Baudolino.Milan: Romanzo Bompiani, 2000 Stock Code: 149406
First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed on the title to a professor of anthropology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa "for Andrew Arno, cordially, Umberto Eco". A lovely copy of Eco's novel, set in the mythical Christian world of the 12th century.
Large octavo. Original dark blue boards, spine lettered in silver. With dust jacket.
Spine ends a touch bumped, the binding otherwise sound and square, small worm holes to first 100 pages' foot of gutter but not affecting text, light toning to contents. A very good copy in very good jacket, faint creasing to corners, laminate slightly lifting to upper rear panel, not price-clipped, unfaded.
