London, Orbit, 1990. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. The third Culture novel. Perhaps the greatest of the series. The jacket's near fine with just a little rolling to the edges, and some light rubbing. The book is very good with some foxing to the top edge, fore edge a little foxed also. A nice copy overall.
