Slaughterhouse-Five or the Children's Crusade; or a Duty-Dance with Death
(New York, 1969): Delacorte Press. First Edition. Octavo. ). First Edition. First printing. 186 pages. One of the greatest novels of imagination by an author who describes himself as: "A fourth generation German-American, now living in easy circumstances on Cape Cod [and smoking too much] who, as an American infantry scout hors de combat as a prisoner of war witnessed the fire-bombing of Dresden....a long time ago, and survived to tell the tale, this is a novel, somewhat in the telegraphic schizophrenic manner of tales of the planet Tralfamadore where the flying saucers come from. Peace. One of the most important science fiction novels which continues to capture the imagination of succeeding generations. A good copy with light wear, some extraneous inscription and name of a previous owner, in a good unclipped dust jacket with toning, light wear along edges, and chipping to corners, damp staining along fold of rear flap, small scrape to rear panel. [Attributes: First Edition]
