Inscribed by Doctorow and dated in the year of publication: "To --, friends and neighbors, whom I did not know soon enough to put in this book" and signed "Ed Doctorow". Doctorow and the inscribees went on to enjoy a 50-year friendship.
Doctorow's second book, a science fiction novel never re-published at his insistence.
Very good, some toning to the board edges, spotting to red topstain, some yellowing to front and rear pastedowns and endpapers. Hold the book at a certain angle and you'll also notice indentations to the front board where someone has used the book as a writing surface. Dust wrapper is about very good, writing indentations on front panel (note: no ink bleed through, just indentations), rubbing to extremities and spotting to interior.
