DescriptionKurt Vonnegut, Jr. Cat's Cradle. New York Chicago San Francisco: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, .
First edition. Octavo. 233 pages. Jacket design by Ben Feder, Inc.
Publisher's green cloth over blue boards with blue and gilt lettering on spine and front cover. Original pictorial dust jacket. Top edge green. Housed in a custom blue cloth slipcase. Minor edge wear to the boards. Dust jacket worn at the edges, spine ends, and corners, with mild paper loss. Two small creases and a tiny abrasion to the rear panel. A very good copy of Vonnegut's fourth book.
In 1971, this brilliant science-fiction novel earned Kurt Vonnegut his Masters degree in anthropology from the University of Chicago, after his thesis had been rejected. Nothing is sacred, as the author tackles religion, science, technology, and such topical issues as the nuclear arms race. A fantastic read.
