Om föremålet

A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (a gap between the spine and the page block caused by the page block's heaviness, a bit of shelf soil to the closed page block's bottom leading edge), in a Fine dust jacket covered with a Near Fine clear overjacket with the author's name and the book's title thereon in black; Pynchon's fifth novel, a fictional account of a collaboration between Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in astronomical and surveying exploits in Cape Colony (a British Colony also known as "The Cape of Good Hope), Saint Helena (one of the world's most remote islands), Great Britain, and in the United States along the Mason-Dixon line (a line surveyed by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon to resolve a border dispute involving the British colonies of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) just prior to the beginning of America's Revolutionary War, a line that has come to represent the border between the North and the South in the United States. Writing in the New York Times, Michiko Kakutani described the book as Pynchon's "most emotional and affecting work in his oeuvre to date" and describes the work as "a rollicking picaresque tale, filled with songs, jokes, aphorisms and bad puns, a story populated by talking clocks, petulant automatons, oracles, ghosts, golems and a giant cheese, as well as a populous cast of humans with odd, Pynchonesque names." A Near Fine copy.
