Il pendolo di Foucault.Milan: Bompiani, 1988 Stock Code: 142109
First edition, first printing, of Eco's classic Italian novel which was translated into English by William Weaver the following year.
Large octavo. Original red cloth-grain boards, titles in gilt to spine. With dust jacket.
Frontispiece and occasional in-text diagram.
Spine ends a touch rubbed, the binding otherwise firm and square, faint uniform toning to contents, as often, else internally clean and fresh. A near-fine copy in the very good jacket, not price-clipped, slight creasing and edge-splitting, notably unfaded.
