Surface Detail signed by Iain M. Banks 1st / 1st 2010
First UK edition and first print published by Orbit in 2010. It is in near fine condition. The wrapper is very complete with no tears or chips. There is some gentle rubbing to the top of the spine. It is not price clipped. The book is very presentable with clean and bright boards. The pages have no foxing or previous owners ink. Overall a near fine copy and signed by the author to the title page without dedication.
The events of Surface Detail take place around 2970 AD, according to Banks. The events occur six to eight hundred years after the "Chel Debacle", depicted in the earlier novel Look to Windward which is set seventy-eight years after the events in Use of Weapons. A culture novel. Rare signed.
