Pirsig, Robert M
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values.
The Easton Press, Norfolk, Connecticut, 1999. Signed limited first edition of one of the most important and influential books written in the past half-century. Octavo, original full leather, gilt titles and tooling the spine, raised bands, gilt tooling to the front and rear panels, all edges gilt. Boldly signed by Robert M. Pirsig. In fine condition. "Enormously influential journey of self-discovery permeated by philosophical discussion, and startlingly original and disturbing imagery, based on an autobiographical account of a journey across the USA on a motorbike undertaken with his son in 1968; the shifts between narrative, analogy, and philosophical meditation have prompted several critics to see this work as a latter-day Moby-Dick" (Stringer, 532).
