About This Item

New York: NAL, 1968. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 5 5/8 X 8 3/8 Inches. 309 PP. Stated "First Edition" on the copyright page. Original price of $5.95 intact on front. The true first printing of Crichton's first hardcover novel (after the paperback releas of "Odds On" in 1966). Signed by Crichton on a laid-in bookplate. Very light residue to pastedowns from a bit of tape. Some toning to board edges. A bit of foxing to gutters. Overall, a very attractive copy of this very important book for collectors of Michael Crichton / Modern Fiction.
