Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands, Amado, Jorge
1 Amado, Jorge Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands
New York Knopf 1969 First American Edition Stated Hard Cover Near Fine Good 
This book is so attractively designed. The light olive boards are pristine and unbumped and are printed in the purple color which reprises on the inked top edge. The purple edge is pristine. The jacket has sunned on the spine, a fault which wraps around to the back a bit (see photo). There's also some light soil that can't be cleaned any more than it has due to uncoated paper, and a few amall edge tears. It has not been price-clipped and looks most handsome in brand new mylar. Book was translated from the Portuguese with humor intact. Amado was a modernist who was the most appreciated author from Brazil. 533 pages. If you love cooking, or are a foodie you will especially enjoy it.
