Hardcover UK, first printing and first UK edition. (The US edition precedes by 3 weeks.) Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. This copy is wrapped in the creme (white) jacket. Besides some editorial changes, the UK edition has some differences from the US edition, specifically the addition of a silk placeholder ribbon not in the US edition and a different photo of Ms. Clarke on the rear jacket flap. The first edition was issued in two jacket states: one creme and the other black, this is the creme-colored jacket. (All later printings will have black jackets only.) Heavily promoted new novel which meets the critics rave reviews. Collectors have edged toward collecting the creme colored jackets over the black as all later printings will be published in black jackets only. Also, neither the the creme nor black colored jackets are laminated, making them very prone (especially the creme jacket), to wear and smudges. The US edition is already into its 8th printing and appearing in red jackets. Time and handling will make the creme jackets the premier collector's trade edition. ''A quite extraordinary novel, not least because of the quiet, almost leisurely ways by which it achieves its extraordinariness.'' - Gary K. Wolfe, Locus.
