A very good copy of the first edition, in publisher's gray cloth covers and original dust jacket, of this foundational science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick (1928-1982).  Jacket design by Harry Sehring. 

Set in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco in the near future, the novel follows Rick Deckard, a bounty hunter who is faced with retiring six escaped androids.  At its core, the novel explores the essential issues of the meaning and destiny of humanity.  Nominated for the 1968 Nebula Award and basis for the 1982 film Blade Runner directed by Ridley Scott.  Quite scarce.

Stated first edition.
