1st Printing. Signed. 525 pages. Published in 2003. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time, it is now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. 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 that sold out upon publication and has since become a beloved global bestseller. The First Edition is now rare. Presents, in its First Edition, Audrey Niffenegger's "The Time Traveler's Wife". A soaring love story illuminated by dozens of finely observed details and scenes. "Skates nimbly around a huge conundrum at the heart of the book: Henry De Tamble, a dashing librarian at the famous Newberry Library in Chicago, finds himself unavoidably whisked around in time. He disappears from a scene in 1998 to find himself suddenly at an entirely different place 10 years earlier or later. During one of these migrations, he drops in on beautiful teenage Clare Abshire, an heiress in a large house on the nearby Michigan peninsula, and a lifelong passion is born. Such is the author's tenderness with the characters and the determinedly un-gimmicky way in which she writes of their predicament that the book is much more love story than fantasy. The book leaves the reader with an impression of life's riches and strangeness rather than of easy thrills" (Publishers Weekly). The basis of the film adaptation by Robert Schwentke, with Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana. An absolute "must-have" title for Audrey Niffenegger collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Audrey Niffenegger. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Souvenir Announcement of the event during which her signature was obtained. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is one of the single most beautiful copies of the book we have ever seen. A rare signed copy thus. One of the finest American artist/writers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
