Il pendolo di foucault, Umberto Eco
First edition, first printing of Eco's acclaimed second novel, translated into English the following year as Foucault's Pendulum, signed by the author to the title page.
Milan: Bompiani, 1988. An about near fine copy in a near fine, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square, a few bumps to board extremities and traces of rubbing to edge of text block. Internally clean. The dust jacket remains bright and vivid with traces of shelfwear, a tiny scratch to front panel and a very minor stray pen mark to front flap. A very attractive copy, protected in archival mylar.
