DescriptionWalter M. Miller, Jr. A Canticle for Leibowitz. Philadelphia & New York: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1960.
First edition, first state dust jacket. Octavo. 320 pages.
Publisher's black cloth shelfback over pink boards. The front cover features a small illustration in black and the spine is lettered in pink. Illustrated dust jacket designed by Milton Glaser. Very minor rubbing to the covers, very slightly bowed covers, very minor bumping to the bottom corners and head and foot of the spine, some rubbing and soiling to the jacket, a few small closed tears to the edges of the jacket, on long repaired tear to the jacket spine, some small tape repairs to verso of the jacket. Altogether a good copy.
The first and only novel published by the author, this Hugo award winning work is a compilation of three short stories initially published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. This copy is a first edition due to the statement on the copyright page. The jacket is a first edition due to the presence of quotes by Kingsley Amis, Pat Frank, and R. W. B. Lewis on the back cover, and the presence of the price $4. 95 on the bottom of the front inner flap.
