“I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?" Death thought about it. "CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.”
PRATCHETT, Terry. Sourcery. London, Victor Gollancz, 1988.
8vo. Original yellow cloth, titled gilt to spine, with illustrated dustwrapper depicting Rincewind the Failed Magician; pp.243; a very good copy with a little occasional light foxing.
First edition. An early Discworld novel that concerns itself with the topics of power, apocalypse and the travails of the Luggage (a sentient wooden chest with hundreds of tiny feet). Like The Light Fantastic and The Colour of Magic, this book focuses on Rincewind the Wizard as its protagonist.
The fifth book in the Discworld series. Sourcery can be one of the harder to find books in the series, particularly in good condition.
