London, Herbert Jenkins, 1965. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Signed by the author to the title page without inscription. A fix-up novel, abridged from the four original magazine publications, containing three shorter pieces 'The Coming of Chaos', 'Sad Giant's Shield' and 'Doomed Lord's Passing' ('The Coming of Chaos' being itself a fix-up of 'Dead God's Homecoming' and 'Black Sword's Brothers'?). Not price-clipped (some copies were repriced by the publisher with a clip and a sticker). A 10mm and a 6mm tear to top of jacket and small chip (~1mm) to top of spine. Minor nibbling to lower spine tip. A little handling wear but all in all a remarkably well-preserved copy. The UK edition is distinguished from the US by the presence of a UK jacket priced in GBP. Cover art by Jim Cawthorn [7871, Hyraxia Books].
