A Canticle for Leibowitz
Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1960. First edition. Winner of the 1960 Hugo Award. Miller's quirky, significant novel was among the first in the modern science fiction canon to develop futuristic themes around religion: here, a monastic order in whose charge were a number of books saved from "the first Atomic Deluge" provides the key to leading humanity out of the "Age of Simplification," ushering in a Renaissance that would eventually prove the cyclical nature of history. Few small rubbed spots to bottom edge, boards a trifle splayed, else a fine copy in cloth-backed boards. Dust wrapper shows faint toning to spine and light edgewear, otherwise fine. Novelist and critic Edmund Fuller's copy, with his ownership inscription on front endpaper, and his review of this book for the Chicago Sunday Tribune laid in. (Barron 3-125; Pringle 30).
