God Bless You, Mr. RosewaterNew York: Holt, Rinehart, 1965. First Edition. Very slight marginal stains on a few leaves; a very good plus copy in a very good dust jacket; in a custom cloth clamshell box. An excellent presentation copy; inscribed by the author, “ For Dean Wayne C. Booth, In thanks for his Rhetoric of Fiction, which I will teach most respectfully next semester. Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. Nov. 8, 1965.” The title mentioned is Booth’s best-known work. He was Vonnegut’s advisor at the University of Chicago. While Vonnegut books are commonly found signed, genuine contemporary, meaningful presentations are especially scarce.
