1 Vonnegut, Jr., Kurt A Man Without A Country
Norwalk CT Easton Press 1st Thus Full-Leather As New No Jacket as Issued Signed by Author
This book is still in the original publishers shrinkwrap. Unlike most of the wonderful Kurt Vonnegut titles A Man Without a Country is a collection of essays and articles rather than a novel. But the writing is Vonnegut at his visionary best. The book affords the reader an open look into Vonnegut's views on life, art, politics, and the human condition at the outset of the 21st century. This should be of interest to all of Mr. Vonnegut's readers because we get to see how his ideas affect his writing. The book is also liberally illustrated with artwork by the author throughout, adding to the artistic portrait of this wonderful and most creative writer. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled deep blue leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front as well as the back boards. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It includes a certificate of authenticity and a 4x6 card laid in with biographical information as well as a few words about the book itself. Published by Easton Press it is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

2 Vonnegut, Jr., Kurt Bluebeard
Norwalk CT Easton Press 2005 1st Thus Full-Leather As New No Jacket as Issued Signed by Author
This book is still in the original publishers shrinkwrap. Bluebeard is Kurt Vonnegut's classic novel from 1985. It resurrects the character Rabo Karabekian from 'Breakfast of Champions". The novel exudes the multi-faceted wit and defiant literary style of this most creative writer. Thematically the book pokes fun at the modern concept of art-for-investment. It also characterizes humankind's penchant for the passionate creation and the systematic destruction of Love and Beauty. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled gray leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front as well as the back boards. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand.

3 Vonnegut, Jr., Kurt Galapagos
Norwalk CT Easton Press 2005 1st Thus Full-Leather As New No Jacket as Issued Signed by Author
Just Reduced! This book is still in the original publishers shrinkwrap. From the author of Breakfast of Champions and Slaughterhouse Five, this beautiful Easton Press edition of Galapagos is in as new condition. Kurt Vonnegut is surely one of our most important living novelists and certainly one of the most funny and bizarre writers that has ever put pen to paper. Galapagos is set "one million years ago, back in 1986 A.D." It is a post-apocalyptic tale of humorous irony. Originally published in 1985, the book is a genealogical romp laced with oddball Darwinian references. It provides undisguised pokes at the big-brained but small-minded society of the latter half of the twentieth century. The book combines Science Fiction, anthropology, fantasy, and brilliant satire. Truly a great Vonnegut work. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled deep blue-green leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front as well as the back boards. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It includes a certificate of authenticity and a 4x6 card laid in with biographical information as well as a few words about the book itself. Published by Easton Press it is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

4 Vonnegut, Jr., Kurt Look at the Birdie - Unpublished Short Fiction
Norwalk CT Easton Press First Edition Full-Leather As New No Jacket as Issued Signed by Author
This beautiful Easton Press Signed edition is still in the original publisher's shrinkwrap. Please forgive the picture as it is very difficult to get a decent scan of a book still in wrap. This book of Kurt Vonnegut's unpublished Short Fiction is a strictly Limited edition of 1000 copies. Each volume is signed and numbered by Mr. Vonnegut and it is a fine volume indeed. The Easton Press had a working relationship with the author for more than fifteen years before he passed away not too long ago. This is a very special edition. Several years ago Kurt Vonnegut had prepared signed pages for an Easton Press First edition that never materialized. Those signed pages had been carefully stored waiting for an appropriate edition. With the author's death the project seemed never to be realized. Recently, however, a new collection of previously unpublished short fiction has been discovered and was collected in a book entitled 'Look at the Birdie'. This volume is a First edition and it is signed by the author. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark and 22kt gold on the spine. The spine has raised bands in the style of classic bookbinding. Beautiful gilt designs ornament the front board and unlike most Easton Press books which are decorated with gilt, this volume has gilt as well as coloring. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It has raised bands on the spine in the style of classic bookmaking. Published by Easton Press it is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come.

5 Vonnegut, Jr., Kurt Player Piano
Norwalk CT Easton Press 1st Thus Full-Leather As New No Jacket as Issued Signed by Author
Player Piano was Kurt Vennegut's first novel. It was originally published in 1952. Vonnegut had previously worked as a PR writer for General Electric's renowned Research Laboratory.

Player Piano draws extensively from his experiences at the Laboratory. Set in an America where the only people that have any purpose are the elite technocrats who control the computers which control everything else. It is the story of engineer Paul Proteus, who joins a rebellion of those made useless by technology. Amazing prescience for 1952! This volume is brand-new and has never been read. It is in as new condition. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark, and 22kt gold on the spine.
