THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1969. dj. Hardcover first edition - Crichton's first book under his own name, a now classic thriller of 'the world's first space age biological emergency' as a team of scientists rush to find an antidote to a deadly unknown organism brought back to earth by a space ship. Basis for the movie of the same name. True first printings in collectable condition are rather harder to find than it might appear; since this book was a Book of the Month club selection, 'false firsts' are quite common. (This copy has the original price of 5.95 still present on the dustjacket.) References. 295 pp. Dust jacket by Paul Bacon.
Condition: Very good in very good dust jacket (hint of spine slant, some wear to dj at ends of spine, creasing on flaps)
