First UK edition, first printing. The publisher's retained copy. Original orange cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper and retaining the wraparound band. A very neat fine copy, the binding square and firm, the contents with the publisher's "Archive Copy" stamp to the title page and front pastedown are otherwise clean and bright throughout. Inner hinge cracked but holding. Complete with the original dustwrapper which is a little nicked and creased to the extremities and with the publisher's "File Copy" stamp at the head of the upper panel. The UK issue of the author's highly regarded sci-fi novel is scarce, this being of notable provenance.
Provenance: From the archive of the publisher Victor Gollancz.
