Description

    Philip K. Dick: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Review Copy. (Garden City, New York: Doubleday, 1968), first edition, 210 pages, gray cloth with gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). A small 4" x 6" Doubleday review slip laid in, dated March 22, 1968. Housed in a black banded quarter-leather solander box with marbled boards, cloth edges, and gilt lettering on spine. Jacket design by Harry Sehring. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is one of the seminal science fiction novels, especially in the pantheon of modern science fiction. 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 popular since its publication in 1968. The novel has been translated into dozens of languages and referenced in a diverse array of other media, including video games and popular music. This copy is near fine, with very minimal corner wear to the book, which also displays mild foxing to the top textblock edge and minimal fading on the front board edge. Some discoloration to the hinges present at the endpapers. The dust jacket has very mild wear to the edges, and the head and tail of the spine, but is otherwise free of flaws and remarkably clean. A handsome first edition of Dick's most famous and influential book. From the Ventura Collection.
