About this Item

Near Fine in Near Fine Embossed Pictorial Dust Jacket with original price ($25.00). Flat signed by author on title page. A widely praised novel from Robinson, winner of both the Hugo and Nebula Awards. The novel focuses on the the consequences of global warming, both on a global level, and as it affects the main characters: several employees of the National Science Foundation and those close to them. Buddhist philosophy is one of Robinson's recurring themes, represented here by the agency of ambassadors from Khembalung, a fictional Buddhist micro-state located on an offshore island in the Ganges delta. Their state is threatened by rising sea levels, and the reaction of the Khembalis is compared to that of the Washingtonians. Orange paper over boards with red cloth backstrip and gilt titling on spine. Covers show very mild wear. Dust Jacket shows very light shelf wear, very mild rubbing on rear. Previous owner's bookplate at front pastedown; otherwise interior is clean, crisp, tight & bright, and other than author's signature unmarked. 388 pp. Approx. 6.5" x 9.5". An excellent copy. Carefully shipped in secure parcel. Ask all questions; glad to respond. Bookseller Inventory # 501065
