First edition first printing, green boards, with brown titling, the boards are clean and sharp. There is a light rubbing to the corners, and edges and the spine ends. The spine is straight with perfect titling, the ends are bumped. The text block edges have light toning. The FEP and the first few pages have a couple of spots. There is a previous owners Hannes Bok bookplate to the FEP, along with a previous booksellers near pencil price. The pages are crisp and clean, the aforementioned couple spots to the first few pages with larger patch of toning to page 3, no further spots marks or tears. Feels very well bound and lightly read. Very good condition. The jacket is lovely glossy and bright, with bold colours to panels and spine. The front panel small colour break creases to the edges, there are minor rubs to the corners and the joint ends, with a small loss to the foot of the rear joint. There is also a couple of closed tears (8-15mm) to the top and bottom edges. The spine has some crimping and rubbing at ends. The rear panel is nice with some light marking and toning to the white areas. Overall a very good close to near fine copy. Signed by author to the title page. More images of this book are available please contact us if you require them. A very nice and attractive copy of this book with the classic Brinkley cover art. Signed directly (not a bookplate or sticker) to the title page in blue Biro by Hal Clement in quote marks, under which is Harry C Stubbs in parenthesis. This volume was obtained from the estate of Roger Earnshaw, SF collector, well known at British conventions and fandom, who often attended author signings. A scarce signed US first edition of a sought after title that would make a great addition to a serious SF collection.
