Robert Pirsig - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values

New York: Morrow, 1974. First edition, fifth printing. Hardcover. 8vo. 1/4 black cloth binding. 412 pp. Fair condition. Rubbing, general wear to covers; red inkpen on rear endpaper. Textblock exhibits a slight convex extrusion away from the spine (a condition that seems to be almost universal for this title--see photos). Dust jacket isn't perfect (see photos) but let's face it: if Robert Pirsig really cared so much about quality the dust jacket would have looked better to begin with, right? (Just joking.)
