HELLER, Joseph: Catch-22. London, Jonathan Cape, 1962 (first UK edition). Octavo; hot pink papered boards lettered in gilt on the spine; covers lightly marked and bumped; top edge a little marked (and its original green stain is now very light); trifling signs of handling; a very good copy with the good price-clipped first-state dustwrapper a little worn, chipped and torn with minor loss, with some thin blue ballpoint pen marks decorating the word ‘Catch’ on the front panel, and the rear panel stained and marked.

The dustwrapper is the particularly scarce first-state one, with a 28-line section of the text reprinted on the rear panel.
