Vonnegut Jr., Kurt
The Sirens of Titan.
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1961. First hardcover edition of the author's second novel and what many consider his finest. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Kurt Vonnegut on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with very light rubbing to the spine. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very nice example. The Sirens of Titan is the Hugo Award-nominated story of billionaire Malachi Constant, who persists against a Martian-invasion to be reunited with his estranged family. According to The Harvard Crimson, Vonnegut "put together the whole of The Sirens of Titanin one night He was at a party where someone told him he ought to write another novel. So they went into the next room where he just verbally pieced together this book from the things that were around in his mind." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
