London, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1970. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Humorously inscribed by Aldiss to Oscar [Mellor]. Mellor was a surrealist painter and poet and designed the jacket for Aldiss's Hothouse. A nice association. Short tear to the top of the jacket, and some light bumping to the spine tips but otherwise an excellent copy. Cover art by Lou Klein [9242, Hyraxia Books].
