New York, Doubleday, 1983. Proof. Paperback. A fine copy, with just a touch of edge wear. Uncorrected galley. Presumed first issue. As with most proofs rumours persist on the scarcity of the book with numbers of this purportedly being 50 copies. In our experience this is probably a little low given the frequency with which it hits the market. That said, this is better than commonly seen. There are two variants of the US proof, one a bound facsimile of the typescript (the present copy), the other a bound typeset piece. [6237, Hyraxia Books].
