London, Michael Joseph, 1955. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Signed by the author, with the date September 1955. Very uncommon thus. We can find no signed copies having sold at auction. The Chrysalids is a classic work of 1950s science fiction, and in our opinion one of the finest works of literature. The book is very good with some foxing to the fore-edge, the jacket is very good also with a little edge wear, and a couple of short tears, one longer tear (25mm) to lower front. A presentable copy, but of course the biggest attraction is the rare hand of Wyndham on the title page (I mean hand-written text, there are no Wyndham body-parts included). Cover art by Wildsmith [6499, Hyraxia Books].
