Item #10089 Gravity's Rainbow. Thomas PYNCHON.

Gravity's Rainbow

NY: Viking, (1973). A highly unique copy of this First edition, notably scarce, perhaps rare. Seemingly a family copy. On the front pastedown it bears the heraldic bookplate (VERITE SANS PEUR) of the Pynchon family. First Edition copy of the reclusive author's landmark third novel. At 760 pages, a massive opus in breadth and scope, as well as in major literary significance, this winner of the National Book Award was also awarded the prestigious William Dean Howells Medal for best work of fiction to appear in the United States over a five-year period. While many less-than-presentable copies appear on the market, this copy is truly fine, in its original first state dust jacket, bright and crisp, without the spine-fading endemic to this title, equally fine but for a single half-inch closed tear to the upper real panel and the most miniscule, really negligible, rubbing to the tips. A beautiful example. Item #10089
