Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by the author to his English translator "a William Weaver Italo Calvino" on the first blank, with pencil annotations by Weaver in the margins of a few pages. Weaver's translation of this work into English was published in 1968, winning the National Book Award for translation. He would continue to be the conduit through which Calvino's international fame in the English speaking world became assured. Cosmicomics is one of Calvino's major works, comprising twelve short stories each working a scientific fact into a fantasy.
