Synopsis: One of the great masterpieces of modern Latin American fiction, Terra Nostra is concerned with nothing less than the history of Spain and of South America, with the Indian Gods and with Christianity, with the birth, the passion, and the death of civilizations. Fuentes skillfully blends a wide range of literary forms, stories within stories, Mexican and Spanish myth, and famous literary characters in this novel that is both a historical epic and an apocalyptic vision of modern times. Terra Nostra is that most ambitious and rare of creations—a total work of art

About the Author:

Carlos Fuentes is the author of more than a dozen novels, including Terra Nostra, The Old Gringo, The Crystal Frontier, and The Years with Laura Diaz, as well as numerous literary and political essays. He divides his time between Mexico City and London.

Book Description Secker & Warburg, London England, 1977. Cloth. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st U.K. Edition. Sunned spine to D/J. A story of fable and legend and allegory and prophecy, magnificently painted in by the distinguished Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes, Terra Nostra is a work of magnitude, of depth and grandeur. The life and times of Phillip II of Spain - Felipe El Senor - are the core. Fuentes' Felipe witnesses both the discovery of the New World and the decline of Spanish greatness as a world power in the Old Word. But he is not the historical Felipe: this Felipe exists outside, and at the same time at the heart of, history. Here history and fiction intertwine; chronological time is abolished; all times meet, fuse, separate; action turns back on itself; circles close, and open, and close. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardback. Seller Inventory # 010253

Book Description Secker & Warburg, London, 1977. Hardback. Condition: Very Good Indeed. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Very good first printing in near fine dustwrapper. The books is square and tight but there is flecking to all edges of the text block. Signed by the author to the title page, without inscription. (The author's usual minimal signature). The dustwrapper is complete but with shelfwear evident and some chipping to lower edge. A few patches of light browning to flaps. A heavy book which unfortunately may well attract a postal surcharge for overseas mailing. As an enthusiastic collector myself I make every effort to provide a high level of service. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 005810
