Gravity's Rainbow
London, Jonathan Cape, (1973). The uncorrected proof copy of the first British edition of Pynchon's landmark third novel, winner of the National Book Award as well as the William Dean Howells Medal for the best work of fiction by an American over a five-year span. Not noted in Mead and in our experience considerably scarcer than even the scarce U.S. proof. Small bookplate of Ray Roberts, Pynchon's editor, inside the front cover. Fine in wrappers. [#028513] SOLD

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
