ex library with stampings
The hinges and binding are weakening but have no loose or missing pages. The pages are tanned, have a few library stamping and library label in the back, and there is damage to the front paste down from a label removal. The end papers are foxed and the page ends have bug damage. The cover is rubbed, shows wear at the corners and the book slants a little to the right. Acceptable. Hardcover.
Chapter 1: Papa Marco Sanclemente came into the eating room of his canteen and addressed Maria in a heavy unpleased voice. "You said good bye to him very very sweetly, my girl." Maria gathered the cups and handed them to Teresa in the kitchen. She shut the door, without answering her father. The man was well made, but fat; he drove a cart too much and did not walk as all the other men did. He used his mind and not his body, and forgot the dangers of such a practice. He gloomily added another remark. "Three or four weeks ago you didn't know this man. Nobody knew him, but everybody could see that he was a poor foolish damned Spaniard. Then in one day you have looked at him; in one week I see you and him talking so that I am sick remembering the foolish things people can say. The next week a sweet good bye every morning until even my little Teresa eyes every man who comes in, and every Cuban between her and Miguel pokes his neighbor in the belly."....(#0000192)
