DescriptionJohn Kennedy Toole. A Confederacy of Dunces. Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1980.
First edition. Octavo. 338 pages.
Publisher's original beige cloth with black stamping on the spine. Slightly rubbed on the spine ends and just very mildly bumped on the lower corners. There are a couple of small dents on the top page edges and a small ink mark that should not be considered a remainder mark. Boards are slightly splayed out. Previous owner's name in ink on the front pastedown. The jacket shows some light edge wear, primarily around the spine ends and corners. A near fine copy housed in a custom slipcase.
Published posthumously and with great difficultly, this amazing novel went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1981. Set in New Orleans in the early 1960s, it has influenced and inspired many contemporary writers. Though almost lost to obscurity, this work was ultimately recognized for its brilliance and originality and now stands as a masterpiece of twentieth century American fiction.
