The Crying of Lot 49
London, Cape, (1967). The first British edition of his second novel, winner of the Rosenthal Award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, and the most overtly political, and paranoid, of Pynchon's novels. Chosen by David Pringle as one of the hundred best novels of Modern Fantasy. For some reason, this seems to be the scarcest of the British editions of Pynchon's books. Foxing to page edges and a couple tiny spots to spine cloth; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with trace foxing on verso and dust soiling on the rear flap at the top and bottom edges and along the fold.
