How it works


Publisher's brown hardcover binding with dust jacket.

Contents clean with a former owner's name on the front endpaper. Jacket is not price clipped and in good condition with mild age-associated shelf wear.

Before publication Pirsig's editor wrote: "The book is brilliant beyond belief. It is probably a work of genius and will, I'll wager, attain classic status." He was quite right, as over 5 million copies have sold to date. Not bad for a book that was rejected 121 times before finally being accepted for publication by the firm William Morrow & Co.
