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.
