    Theodore Sturgeon: Venus Plus X Association Copy. (London: Victor Gollancz, Ltd., 1969), first hardcover edition, 191 pages, red cloth with gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (5.25" x 8"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). A nominee for the 1961 Hugo Award for Best Novel, Venus Plus X concerns a future society where technology has triumphed over many of the social problems of the present world, and the differences between men and women no longer matter. Laid-in is a folded receipt from the publisher in which Sturgeon had three copies of this book sent to "E.J. Carnell" of "Plumstead, London", and ordered the cost of the books charged to his Gollancz account. This copy is in fine condition, with only minimal shelf wear. The dust jacket is very good, with wear to the top edge, and scattered rubbing on the panels. One small brown stain at the top of the spine does not detract from the overall appeal of this wonderful book. From the Ventura Collection.
