    Description

    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.: The Sirens of Titan. (Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1961), first hardcover edition, first printing, 319 pages, dark blue cloth with white lettering on spine and front board, 8vo (5" x 8.25"), original issue dust jacket with "Previously published as an original paperback book by Dell Publishing Co., Inc." at top of front flap (in protective Mylar). The Sirens of Titan, Vonnegut's second book, was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1960, his first of three nominations for the Hugo thus far. Interestingly, Vonnegut sold the film rights to Jerry Garcia of the rock band The Grateful Dead, who attempted to adapt the story for years. After Garcia's death, Vonnegut exercised his option to buy back the film rights. This copy is very good, with a horizontal brown stain on the front free endpaper that can be seen faintly around the dust jacket as well at the same level. On the back of the jacket, there is an additional faint horizontal browning at the top. A great addition to any Vonnegut library. From the Ventura Collection.
