The Day of Creation (PROOF COPY)

Ballard, J.G.


1st Edition
Soft cover

PROOF COPY. Light blue printed wrappers. Slightly creased and stained. Interior clean and unmarked. *** The proof copy of The Day of Creation exists in two different states. This is the earliest uncorrected proof (384 pages in plain light blue covers). It states:”IMPORTANT NOTE. This early proof is reproduced from the author’s uncorrected and unedited typescript. Nothing should be quoted from this version without being checked against the final copy”. Gollancz issued a later proof, completely re-set from this earlier version with white covers and a b/w image of a steamboat on the front. It has 254 pages (like the published book) and some early quotes on the back cover. It was this later second proof that was sent out to reviewers and bookshops.
