New York, Harcourt, Brace & World, 1961. First Edition, first Impression. Hardback. Hugo Nominee, and having the strangely incongruent claim of being the first science fiction work to become a Reader's Digest Condensed Book. "A sight-seeing vehicle, packed with tourists, sinks into a sea of dust on the moon's surface. The subsequent struggle for survival is tensely described, with fanscinating scientific details?probably the best of his works of near-future realism" [Pringle, p114]. A nice copy. Spine tips a touch bumped and the top edge and block a little toned. Cover art by Arthur Hawkins [8974, Hyraxia Books].
