London, Gollancz, 1966. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy of one of the most popular works of science fiction. A highlight of the genre. Winner of both the Hugo and Nebula awards and Locus magazine's 'Best SF Novel of all-time'. The book needs little introduction. The UK first edition is uncommon. The book is very good with some wear to the laminate as is common, a bump to the lower spine tip and a short tear to the rear hinge. Some grubbiness to the boards at the spine and a little foxing to the foreedge. Endpapers a little toned. A decent enough copy overall. [6538, Hyraxia Books].
