The Print Room
(Lilley nr Luton, United Kingdom)

Book Description The Bodley Head, London, 1974. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Jacket by John Sewell (illustrator). 1st Edition. First UK edition, first impression. Some slight edge wear to top and bottom of jacket and spine, some small loss to top and bottom of spine, corners very slightly rubbed, some yellowing to back jacket and page block, some slight offsetting to endpapers, not price clipped (2.95), no inscriptions, internally clean tight and almost square, overall a vg++ copy for its age. 412pp, illustrated. The book describes, in first person, a 17 day journey on his motorcycle from Minnesota to Northern California by the author (though he is not identified in the book) and his son Chris. They are joined for the first nine days of the trip by close friends John and Sylvia Sutherland who they part ways with in Montana. The trip is punctuated by numerous philosophical discussions, referred to as Chautauquas by the author, on topics including epistemology, ethical emotivism and the philosophy of science. The book sold more than five million copies worldwide and was originally rejected by 121 publishers, more than any other bestselling book, according to the Guinness Book of Records. Pirsig explains that, despite its title, 'it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles either'. A cultural classic, now scarce in this first impression. Seller Inventory # 008751
