Notes

Very scarce inscribed copy of García Márquez's first book, ninth edition, inscribed on the half-title to Diego García Elío, the son of his close friends the writers María Luisa Elío Bernal (1926-2009) and Jomí García Elio (1927-1986), who were the dedicatees of Cien años de soledad. The inscription reads, "Diego, este libro tambien lo escribió el tio, Gabriel 1976" ("This book was also written by the uncle"). Though in compromised condition, this is an excellent and close association, with García Márquez as the emotional, rather than biological, uncle of the recipient. La hojarasca (1955) was García Márquez's first publication, and saw the first appearance of the fictional town of Macondo, which would later become the home town of the Buendía family in Cien años de soledad.
