London, Bloomsbury, 2004. Limited Edition. Hardback. 260/1450 Copies. Near fine condition. Signed by the author without inscription to the half title as issued. A stunning novel that took the author ten years of hardwork. Copious footnotes, novel-length in their own. The book won the Hugo Award and was also longlisted for the Booker - rare for a novel to be found in both categories. The novel also won the World Fantasy Award, the Locus, and a number of other awards. A lovely copy, a little bumping to the top of the spine and a strip of lightening to the stained top edge. Illustrations by Portia Rosenberg [7645, Hyraxia Books].
