    Kurt Vonnegut Jr. -- "Slaughterhouse-Five," Signed First Edition (Delacorte Press, 1969). This lot features a handsome, signed first edition of Slaughterhouse-Five. Published in New York by Seymour Lawrence/Delacorte Press. First Printing is stated on the copyright page. Kurt Vonnegut Jr. signed a tipped-in plate (smeared slightly) that was mounted on the title page. The dust jacket price reads $5.95. Both the book and the dust jacket are in Very Good condition. Kurt Vonnegut's absurdist classic tells the story of Billy Pilgrim, who becomes unstuck in time after he is abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore. Billy Pilgrim passes through all phases of his life, and the story spotlights the firebombing of Dresden in 1945.
