First edition, first printing. Publisher's original white cloth over grey boards with titles in gilt to the upper board and in dark blue to the spine, in the Carin Goldberg illustrated and designed dustwrapper. An excellent very near fine copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth bright and fresh. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's marks. Complete with the very lightly rubbed and creased dustwrapper that has a touch of toning to the spine. Not price-clipped ($27.50 to the upper front flap).
The author's sixth novel, the size and complexity of which has led it to be compared with Joyce's Ulysses, and Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow.
