New York, Doubleday, 1980 . Proof. Paperback. A fine copy, wraps. In many ways a natural succesor to Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Included is a publisher's form letter, wherein he allows speculation that the book will inevitably be compared to 1984 and Brave New World. Alas, it never quite met those dizzy heights, but is certainly a classic piece of science fiction. Signed by the author without inscription. Editor's letter laid-in (edge worn). A couple of feint spots to the top corner. [7587, Hyraxia Books].
