New York, Ballantine Books, 1955. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Inscribed by Wyndham 'For Anthony from John Wyndham". Precedes the UK edition I believe, which was published as The Chrysalids. Uncommon. Rubbed to the edges, some foxing on the endpapers and a little toning. Jacket worn with some chipping to the tips. Flaps a touch spotted. The recipient was one Tony Barker, whose uncle was a friend and neighbour of Wyndham in Petersfield. Barker?s aunt is interviewed in the 2005 documentary John Wyndham: The Invisible Man of Science Fiction, credited as Sister Tess Barker Bede, a family friend. [8520, Hyraxia Books].
