London: Faber and Faber, 1958. First Edition. Copy belonging to the author's British agent, E.J. Carnell in London, with their label on the front endpaper, reading "NON-STOP / by / Brian W. Aldiss / First American Rights" in holograph manual type. A touch of rubbing to the rear panel, else Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket.
Considered by many to be Aldiss' finest work. The American edition, for which this copy was ostensibly the template, was retitled "Starship," with many textual revisions. An exceptional copy of the author's third book in terms of both condition and relevance to its publication history. In a custom red cloth slipcase.
Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 3-4. Pringle 25.
