Umberto Eco made brilliant contributions to medieval scholarship, semiotics, philosophy, and literature. As a cultural critic and academic, he published dozens of important works, including A Theory of Semiotics, Kant and the Platypus, and The Infinity of Lists. Yet he is more widely known today as a novelist and The Name of the Rose is certainly his most famous work. It was his first published novel. A masterful historical fiction that incorporates semiotics and medieval studies into its narrative, The Name of the Rose is adored by popular readers and scholars alike. It is often cited among the best novels of the last 50 years.

This first American edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original quarter cloth, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, very good with some chipping and creases to edges.

A very good first American edition of Eco’s greatest work of fiction.
