A Canticle for Leibowitz

Classic post-apocalyptic science fiction novel that spans thousands of years as man tries to rebuild itself from the ashes of nuclear war. Set in a Catholic monastery where the monks of the Albertian Order of Leibowitz collect and preserve scientific knowledge until man is ready and perhaps worthy to have it again. Suffice to say, it doesn't end well. Winner of the 1961 Hugo award for best science fiction novel. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels (30).

Bottom edge and corners of boards lightly rubbed, else near fine in dust jacket with some internal darkening and soiling along spine. Externally, jacket is bright and attractive, with slight rubbing on spine and minor wear at extremities. Nice copy.
