New York, Doubleday, 1954. First edition, first impression. Hardback. An nice copy. Pangborn's second novel. Winner of the 1955 International Fantasy Award. Near fine with some rubbing to the board edges, a little staining to the lower edge, and a little waviness to the upper board. Jacket is in excellent shape with just a touch of rubbing and scuffing to the spine tips and corners. What colour there is on the spine is a little sunned. A superb copy.
