    First Edition of Garcia Lorca's Blood Wedding

    Federico Garcia Lorca. Bodas de Sangre (Tragedia en tres actos y siete cuadros). Madrid: Ediciones del Arbol, 1935. First edition, first issue. One of only 1,100 copies. Octavo. Original printed paper wrappers, glassine added later. Edges uncut. 125 pages. A fine copy. With the bookplate of French film director Jacques Martineau. Housed in a custom red cloth fall-down-back box with a paper lettering label on the spine. Garcia Lorca's tragedy was first performed in Madrid in 1933, a year after it was written. Later in 1933 it also opened in Buenos Aires. It is often grouped with Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba as the "Rural Trilogy", though Garcia Lorca did not include Bernarda Alba in his plans for a "trilogy of the Spanish Earth."
