London, Jonathan Cape, 1965. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Douglas Hill's copy. Near fine. Previously published in 1964 as The Burning World, expanded for the Cape edition. First hardback edition. A classic of disaster science fiction, and a direct contrast to the earlier Drowned World. Some wear to the head and tail of spine, a little toning to the spine, some light darkening to the jacket. Slight lean. Front pastedown stamped 'Douglas Hill'. Hill was a writer himself, but also an editor. Ballard's Subliminal Man was included in Window on the Future which Hill edited. A nice association. [6967, Hyraxia Books].
