British Library: GB77-26648 (from LCCN) Publ date inferred from timing: Price from publisher advert The Guardian 1977-09-29 p9 (earliest found) Brief reviews by Naomi Lewis The Observer -09-25 p25 and Philippa Pearce The Guardian -09-29 p9 Front cover and spine image from Amazon UK 2017-05-13 (with confused data: "Hardcover – 12 May 1977", "presented here in a high quality paperback edition", 224 pages). The image is readable, clearly fits the Gollancz hardcover, and similarity of the illustration with one in the review by Naomi Lewis shows that it must be from (coloured in part) one of the etchings by Ware.
