Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition hardback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  Age tanning to pages making them rather brown but still eminently readable.  Minor bump to head and tail of book spine and to bottom edge of front board.  The dust jacket is complete and still shows the price but is showing some signs of wear to the extremities.  Some minor creasing to top edge of dust jacket.

As the ship comes to a crashing halt, only one soul is left alive (or two, if you count the parrots). The village has gone. The Nation as it was has gone. Now there’s just Mau, who wears barely anything, a trouser-man girl who wears far too much, and an awful lot of big misunderstandings…”
