Catch 22. London, Jonathan Cape. 1962. First UK edition first printing. Publisher's red cloth boards. Original dust-jacket, designed by Germano Facetti (second state with reviews to lower panel). Neat ownership name to front free endpaper, otherwise the book is near fine; jacket a little toned, but still bright with minimal edge wear. The author's first book. American author and former combat pilot Joseph Heller's defining work; the satirical anti-war novel, set in Italy during the Second World War.
