First edition, first printing, inscribed by the author on the title page "for Malcolm, with all good wishes, Ursula, 14 IX 87". This title was Le Guin's literary debut, in which she coined the word "ansible" for a faster-than-light communicator, a since staple term in sci-fi literature.
Small octavo. Original illustrated wrappers, titles to covers and spine.
With two lino prints, one to the first chapter of each title.
Extremities a touch nicked and rubbed, the wrappers otherwise sound and bright, internally clean; a remarkably fresh copy.
