Boston, Little Brown, (1990). Inscribed by Pynchon to his editor, Ray Roberts: "For Ray, who saw it first but went for it anyway -- Thanks for everything. Thomas Pynchon." A great, and grateful, inscription, with Pynchon's characteristic self-deprecating humor about his own writing. Pynchon's signature is among the rarest in modern literature, and meaningful presentation copies seldom appear on the market; the best Pynchon inscription we've ever handled, or seen. Roberts' bookplate on the pastedown; fine in a fine dust jacket. [#028521] SOLD
