DescriptionPhilip K. Dick. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Garden City: Doubleday, 1968.
First edition. Octavo. 210 pages.
Publisher's gray cloth with gold stamping. Ex-library copy with ink stamp to the bottom of the dedication page, and two small call letters to the top of the copyright page. These are the only library markings in the book, though the endpapers appear to have been renewed. Cloth is lightly rubbed and worn with a slight lean to the spine and a few spots of soiling to the fore-edge. Minor toning to endpapers with paper loss to the corners of a few scattered pages. Soiling to the text on a few pages. Tape shadows on boards and inner flaps of dust jacket. There is mild rubbing and edge wear to jacket with some chipping to upper spine end and corners, and minor fading along the spine. Paper loss to front inner flap at the lower corner. In spite of the typical flaws associated with a former library copy, this is still a solid, attractive copy in very good condition, and with the original, unclipped dust jacket without markings or restoration.
Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is one of the seminal modern science fiction novels. Strangely, the novel is almost less famous now than the 1982 film adaptation, Blade Runner. Like most film adaptations, however, the quality of the film does not approach that of the book. Dick's multi-textured post-apocalyptic tale of off-world humans and their interactions with human-like androids has been wildly popular since its publication in 1968.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
