London, Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1950. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy in a good jacket. The second in Peake's famous trilogy. Neil Gaiman is reported to be adapting the trilogy for TV. One of the most unique and influential works of speculative fiction. In Cawthorn and Moorcock's 100 Greatest Fantasy books [p137]. The book has a little bumping and rubbing to the spine tips, but is decent overall. The jacket has some chipping to the head and tail of the spine, fore-corners similarly worn. Upper and lower jacket plates are tidy. Jacket splits repaired to the spine, neatly taped to inside. A decent enough copy. [7468, Hyraxia Books].
