London, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1960. First Edition, first Impression. Hardback. A good copy. A fine work of science fiction, amongst the finest. This is the first UK edition, preceded by the US Lippincott edition. The book is a little musty, there's evidence of a plate having been on the front pastedown, though there's no evidence of it having been a library copy. Red to top edge of the block is faded, stain to the dedication page, heavy bump to the top edge of the boards. Jacket is nice with a little browning to the edges, where the publisher's laminate hasn't reached. A little trivial chipping and short tears. 25mm tear to rear flap. A nice enough copy overall. Cover art by Milton Glaser [8985, Hyraxia Books].
