About This Item

New York: Delacorte Press. New York, Delacorte Press, 1969. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A fine copy. A lovely example. A highlight of modern speculative fiction, and a classic of 20th Century literature. First Printing indicated on copyright page, 0369 on rear flap. Some toning to the jacket spine, a handful of early leaves have a short 2mm tear with a light crease, doesn't detract though. Excellent copy. [8816, Hyraxia Books]. . Fine. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1969.

Synopsis

Slaughterhouse-Five, an American classic, is one of the world's great antiwar books. Centering on the infamous firebombing of Dresden, Billy Pilgrim's odyssey through time reflects the mythic journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we fear most.
