DescriptionKurt Vonnegut, Jr. Player Piano. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1952.
First edition. Octavo. 295 pages.
Bound in green cloth with silver lettering on spine. An immaculate issue, with nothing more than minor rubbing to spine tail to detract. Occasional faint foxing to page edges; light glue stains to pastedowns. Dust jacket shows some age toning and foxing along edges; sunned spine; small tear at upper recto corner. This is a beautiful copy of Vonnegut's first novel, a speculative work on the negative aspects of the age of electronics. Difficult to find a copy from the first small printing (identified by the "A" on the copyright page) in such nice condition.
