A Gift From Earth

£24.99

Product description

Macdonald, 1968. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. A little grubbiness to the endpapers; the rest of the book is bright and fresh with firm binding. Dustjacket is unclipped and with minor wear to the spine ends; it has been protected in a library cover.

First hardcover edition of the author's second novel and his second novel-length installment in the 'Known Space' saga. This is an ex-library copy with a neat stamp on the verso of the title page and no other library markings. Despite its origins, still a nice copy of an uncommon first edition

Published in the late 60s when Britain's currency underwent decimalisation, the price of this book was given in both the old pounds/shillings/pence currency as well as the 'new pound' decimal version. Both are shown on the jacket. £1.25/25s
