    John Brunner. Stand on Zanzibar. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1968.

    First edition. Octavo. 505 pages.

    Black cloth with silver lettering and pink design on spine. Pink endpapers. Both the book and the textblock are in beautiful condition, showing only the faintest shelfwear to boards. Dust jacket is worn, with several small chips and sections of paper loss (particularly at spine ends) and a few tears, one of which affects the title on the front cover. Brunner's wide-ranging narrative tells the story of an overpopulated world where people are hemmed in by a prison made not of metal bars, but of other human beings, and the dire consequences that will result from the sheer press of humanity. As one of Brunner's most successful works, this 1969 Hugo Award winning title is quite desirable.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
