About This Item

New York: Tor. New York, Tor, 1991. Manuscript. Unbound. A near fine copy of the author's manuscript sent to Greg Bear for review. A photocopy of the preliminary draft dated May 11th 1991. 785pp single-sided. Presented with a letter from Jim Frenkel at Tor to Bear asking for a review. Indeed Bear's quote appears on the jacket. Clearly one of only a few copies made (Benford and Brin also have quotes on the jacket, so must've been a few) A nice link in the publication history of one of the best SF novels of the late 20th Century. Near fine, with a mark to the letter passing through to the first two leaves - maybe an insect nibble. [8905, Hyraxia Books]. . Near Fine. Unbound. Manuscript. 1991.
