PHILIP K. DICK'S PERSONAL COPY OF THE BIBLE WITH HIS INSCRIPTIONS
In 1974, science fiction legend Philip K. Dick experienced a tremendous religious vision and revelation. Renowned cartoonist R. Crumb even illustrated this formative episode in Dick's life (The Religious Experience of Philip K. Dick, which you may find online). Others have written about Dick's religious transformation, but none, to my knowledge, has consulted this volume: Dick's inscribed copy of THE NEW ENGLISH BIBLE: NEW TESTAMENT (Oxford University Press, 1963). On the front flyleaf, Dick has made handwritten notations regarding the resurrection, gnosticism, and the casting out of devils. (I am reproducing this page only partially to prevent copying.) An extremely valuable Dick artifact, particularly given the cost of early Dick first editions; potentially a cornerstone in any Dick / science fiction collection. Provenance: Ex-Powers, ex-Lopez.
Condition: Slight spine cock, bookstore label, else very good.
