SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE, Or The Children's Crusade , by Kurt Vonnegut. New York: Delacorte Press, 1969. Slaughterhouse-Five , the partly autobiographical and somewhat surreal story of Billy Pilgrim's experiences in a WWII POW camp during the fire-bombing of Dresden (and afterwards), has rightly been called one of the three best American novels of the last 100 years. The previous owner was an L.
Based book dealer and collector who possessed a large collection of bookplates signed by famous authors and celebrities, many of which were designated with a particular work. Unfortunately, the collector, who was something of a hoarder, passed on before he could match his many signed bookplates to the titles and people represented in his library. I obtained both the plates, and this book, as part of his estate. This plate was from his complete collection of Vonnegut signed plates, and bears the typewritten title: BY KURT VONNEGUT. Under which is Vonnegut's distinctive signature.Because of its less-than-perfect condition, I'm offering this hugely valuable collectible at a price thousands of dollars less than better-preserved copies fetch from dealers. See the condition notes and the scans here for details; the book is still tightly bound and unmarked inside, and will no doubt appreciate as signed copies of the First/First become ever scarcer. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to score a signed True First of this legendary work for a low price! Format: 5.5 x 8.5 hc w dj & clear wraps, True First/First with points, accompanied by signed and titled bookplate from author, 187 pp. The item "KURT VONNEGUT SIGNED SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE First Edition, FIRST Printing" is in sale since Sunday, December 01, 2013.
