Pynchon, Thomas
J.B. Lippincott Company, Philadelphia, 1963. First printing of Pynchon's expansive and experimental picaresque novel. V. follows Benny Profane, discharged sailor and "human yo-yo," and the obsessive Herbert Stencil in pursuit of the mysterious figure "V." "A brilliant and turbulent first novel," George Plimpton wrote in a contemporary review, with a plan "as complicated and varied as a Hieronymus Bosch triptych." In unusually nice condition. 8.25'' x 5.75''. Original blind-stamped lavender cloth boards, silver-lettered spine. In original unclipped ($5.95) dust jacket designed by Ismar David. Chapter contents on rear panel. 492 pages. Mustard-yellow endpapers, black topstain, fore-edge machine deckle. Cloth lightly faded along edges and spine. Only a little sunning to spine, with minor edgewear. A few spots of adhesive residue to jacket flaps. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
