    Among the scarcest PKD Hardcovers

    Philip K. Dick. The Penultimate Truth. London: Jonathan Cape, [1967]. First British (and first hardcover) edition. Octavo. 254, [255-256: blank] pages. Publisher's purple paper-covered boards, spine lettered in silver, in original dust jacket. A fine copy in very good dust jacket with light wear at edges, touch of dust soiling to white areas and some age-darkening to spine panel. A nice copy.
