London, Jonathan Cape, 1982. Two volumes, being an inscribed first edition and a signed proof thereof. Collects together ten of Ballard's shorter pieces. An excellent collection. The first edition is inscribed by Ballard 'For Edward / Very Best / Jim Ballard', the proof is signed without inscription. The first edition is near fine with a little spotting to the top edge. The proof is a touch rubbed with a few marks to the upper wrap. Cover art by Bill Botten [6975, Hyraxia Books].
