Book Description New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 246 pages. Published in 1991. The author's twelfth novel. Now widely regarded as one of Carlos Fuentes' finest achievements. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Carlos Fuentes' "The Campaign" in a felicitous English translation. One of Fuentes' most beautifully written romance-novels, it is the first in his Series on "The Romantic Time" in Latin-American history. "After the Napoleonic invasion of Spain, the Hispanic colonies of the New World are thrown into turmoil. Fuentes' hero, Baltasar Bustos, idealistic son of an Argentine rancher who is seduced by the ideas of the French writer Rousseau and sickened by the racial inequality around him, becomes a guerrilla fighter in various Latin-American rebellions. In an extravagant gesture, he kidnaps the new-born child of Ofelia Salamanca, wife of the presiding judge of the Argentine vice-royalty in Buenos Aires, and substitutes a black child in its place. That night a fire sweeps through Ofelia's apartment, killing the black infant. Fuentes' skill in fleshing out imaginary and real characters yields lively and entertaining reading" (Publisher's blurb). Readers who have read Fuentes in the original claim that his mastery of the Spanish language is next to none among Latin-American writers in its lucidity, elegance, and beauty. He is highly regarded not just for his exquisite mastery of a very complex language but also for his restless imagination and genuine wisdom. Carlos Fuentes died on May 15, 2012 at the age of 83. To his credit, President Felipe Calderon was one of the very first to announce his death, a gesture that would be unheard-of from a political leader in America when one considers that Fuentes was such a vehement and often despairing critic of his country. Calderon was right to say that Fuentes' death is a loss to Mexico and world literature. An absolute "must-have" title for Carlos Fuentes collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Carlos Fuentes. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program of the event during which Fuentes' signature was obtained. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have serious flaws and have no collectible value. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Cervantes Prize in 1987, awarded to the greatest living writers in Spanish by the Spanish Government. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine copy.
