Vonnegut Jr., Kurt
Player Piano.
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1952. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Kurt Vonnegut with a self-caricature on the half-title page. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with some of the usual toning to the spine and some wear. Jacket design by George W. Thompson. Originally published on August 31, 1952, Player Piano tells the chilling tale of engineer Paul Proteus, who must find a way to live in a world dominated by a supercomputer and run completely by machines. "Vonnegut's black logic . . . gives us something to laugh about and much to fear" (The New York Times Book Review). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
