New York, Walker Books, 1968. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. The first hardback edition of any of McCaffrey's Pern novels. Winner of the Hugo and Nebula, making McCaffrey the first to win both. A landmark work of what turned out to be science fiction. A little toning to the top of the jacket and the spine. Small stain to lower spine tip. Nicer than usually found. Cover art by Lena Fong Lueg [7327, Hyraxia Books].
