1st printing w/complete number sequence. Winner of the Writer's Guild prize for best novel, and described in a starred review by Kirkus Reviews as "A 'Da Vinci Code' for the literate." The true first edition of a massive work restricted to only 5,000 hardcover copies. "An epic novel of genius and obsession," presenting a multi-layered novel at whose heart is Juana Inés de la Cruz, 17th century Mexico's most enigmatic figure, who died in 1695 at the age of forty-six. Brick cloth w/gilt spine lettering/design, 1,358 pages + acknowledgements. This tome is considerably heavier than the average title, and will require additional postage to get it from my corner of the playpen to yours. A nice unread copy.
