(London: Macdonald & Co., 1969), first hardcover edition, 285 pages, green cloth with gilt lettering on spine, 8vo (5.25" x 8"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Inscribed and signed on title page, "for Georgia/Best wishes,/Larry Niven". First published in paperback form in the United States in 1968, this is the first hardcover edition of Niven's first collection of stories. Seven of the eight stories in this collection were first published by the Galaxy Publishing Corporation in either Worlds of If or Galaxy magazine. The title story of this collection won the 1967 Hugo Award for Best Short Story. The copy presented here is in fine condition, with no noticeable flaws to the textblock. There is only the most minor wear to the edges, corners, and spine. The dust jacket shows some sunning to the spine and mild foxing on the rear panel. A must for any Niven collector or science fiction enthusiast. From the Ventura Collection.
