    Description

    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.: Cat's Cradle. (New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1963), first edition, 233 pages, three-quarter lime green cloth and baby blue boards with blue and gilt lettering on the spine and front board, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). In 1963, Graham Greene called Cat's Cradle "one of the three best novels of the year by one of the most able living writers." Interestingly, this novel earned Vonnegut a Master's degree in Anthropology from the University of Chicago upon its release, a degree he was not able to earn while a student there just after returning from World War II. The copy presented here is in fine condition, with very minimal wear to the edges of the book and jacket. A real find for the Vonnegut enthusiast. From the Ventura Collection.
