London, Sidgwick & Jackson, 1956. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. An excellent novel and a highlight of 50s science fiction. Published later in the US and retitled The Stars my Destination. A near fine copy of the first edition with a near fine proof. We've only handled the proof once before and it turns out to be the present copy, having made its way back to us from George Locke. The book has a little edge wear, a crease to the rear flap, slight lean and some toning to the spine. The proof has just some signs of handling, but nothing major. In Rennison and Andrews, p17.
