Pynchon, Thomas. GRAVITY'S RAINBOW. New York: The Viking Press, (1973.)

Book cover picture of Pynchon, Thomas. GRAVITY'S RAINBOW. New York: The Viking Press, (1973.)
Trade paperback His third novel, and perhaps his masterpiece, a black comedy, a paranoia filled fantasy set during World War II, winner of the National Book Award and the William Dean Howells Award, and nominated for the Nebula. Both the hardcover and the large paperback edition had relatively small first printings. 760 pp. Very good in illustrated wrappers - foxing spots to the top edge of the textblock, sunning to the spine, but no creasing to the spine, a tight and clean copy. Although this appears to be a first, based on the C374 on the spine and the copyright page, there is no price on the front cover and no sbn on the back, so probably a very early book club edition. .ISBN # 0-670-003743
