    More Information:

    Walter M. Miller. A Canticle for Leibowitz. New York: J. B. Lippincott, 1960. First edition.

    Octavo. 320 pages. Publisher's lavender cloth over boards, black backstrip lettered in lavender. Jacket spine toned, some wear, a few chips and tears and some thumbsoiling to jacket, some rubbing to binding, tape residue to endleaves. Still, very good. Sam Moskowitz, in Strange Horizons (1976), writes that "A Canticle for Leibowitz is the finest work of religious science fiction written to date. The presentation is direct, yet its message eloquent. The characterization is magnificent, particularly the device of the ageless Wandering Jew, who serves to unify the events that span the centuries. The story is absorbing and [...] one of the most mature and satisfying efforts to come from the ranks of science fiction writers."

    Currey, Science Fiction and Fantasy Authors, p. 367. Moskowitz, p. 16.
