First edition. “An immensely sensuous evocation of Guyanese flora and fauna and its potential impact on the imagination, this classic novel, first published in 1964, is a profound plea for an ecological vision of mankind’s relationship to nature.” (From introduction of the 2009 Peepal Tree Press edition)
London: Faber and Faber, (1964). 96pp. Sm. 8vo. A near fine copy in publisher’s cloth and dust jacket.
