Pynchon, Thomas. Gravity's Rainbow.

New York: Viking, [1973]. First edition. Original cloth in pictorial dustjacket. Very fine. Housed in a 1/2 red morocco slipcase and chemise.

First edition, a beautiful copy of this celebrated novelist's most celebrated novel. Its artistic value is often compared to that of James Joyce's Ulysses. Some scholars have hailed it as the greatest American post-WW2 novel, and it has similarly been described as "literally an anthology of postmodernist themes and devices." (#kfk144) $3,000.00
