By Thomas Pynchon
First Edition, First Impression (Viking, 1973). Winner of the 1974 National Book Award and one of 4,000 copies in hardcover. First Issue dust jacket with the ISBN lettered in white over red on the rear panel and publishers date code '0273' on lower front flap. Couple of minor bumps and a little rubbing to corners of boards, contents pristine. Price-clipped dust jacket has a few soft creases and a little abrasion to top corner of rear panel. An excellent example of a novel considered by some to be among the greatest American Novels.
The Day of the Triffids
By John Wyndham
First Edition, First Impression (Michael Joseph 1951). Contemporary previous owner's inscription to front paste-down, which is covered by dust jacket; corners of front board lightly bumped; light toning to edges. Corners of original and unclipped dust jacket are rubbed with a little loss, a couple of tears to top and bottom of hinges of front and rear panels; marks to top and bottom of rear panel and minor loss to spine tips. A very good copy of a science fiction classic.
