    Description

    Philip K. Dick: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (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. 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 wear to the book. 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, and a small price sticker on the rear panel, but is otherwise remarkably clean. A handsome first edition of Dick's most famous and influential book.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
