The first printing of Vonnegut's masterpiece. This science fiction-infused anti-war novel centers on the World War II firebombing of Dresden, Germany, which Vonnegut (1922-2007) witnessed first-hand as an American POW incarcerated in the doomed city. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt, red, and black titles. A very good copy in a slightly browned dust jacket with some minor shelfwear and soiling. Poo-tee-weet?
