    Description

    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. Cat's Cradle. New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston [1963].
    First edition. Octavo. 233 pages.

    Publisher's green cloth over blue boards with blue lettering on spine and front cover. Bumps on corners and at foot of spine. The dust jacket is very good with some wear, small tears, and a 2.5" x 1.25" piece missing from the bottom corner of the front flap. Overall near fine condition.

    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 fine first edition and a fantastic read. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
