282pp. Octavo [21 cm] 1/2 tan cloth with dark brown cloth covered boards, with a brown and black ink stamped title and snowflake design on the spine which carries over to the front board. Very good. Rubbed and bumped at the extremities. There is a subtle stain on the top edge of the front cover, and the top edge of the text block is just a tiny bit stained. There is a small notation in pen on the front free endsheet. In a fair condition only dust jacket, with numerous light damp stains, a sunned spine, and multiple small losses from the edges. There are 8 pieces of tape on the backside. In Tuck.
In this book, the snowflake functions as a time/space machine, and can give numerous ideas of what the future can be.
