Esquivel, Laura (Translated by Margaret Sayers Peden). THE LAW OF LOVE. New York City, NY: Crown Publishers, 1996. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 266 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's second novel. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Laura Esquivel, who wrote the international bestseller, "Like Water for Chocolate", has done it again with a novel that is innovative in several ways: a) it takes place three centuries in the future; b) it comes with a unique music CD consisting of folk Mexican and great operatic arias handpicked by the author to "accompany" one's reading of the novel; and c) it contains luscious full-color illustrations by the great Miguelanxo Prado. Most unusual in every respect, the Law of Love is to be both romantic and comic in order for love to last. A story to savor, like chocolate. A "must-have" title for Laura Esquivel collectors. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the First American Edition still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. A fine copy.
