The State of the Art by Iain M. Banks 1st / 1st 1991


First edition and first print published by Orbit in 1991. This is a near fine copy. The unclipped dust wrapper is very complete with no tears or chips. It has the tiniest of rubbing to the top of the spine. The book is also very presentable with no foxing or wear. There is no previous owners names or ink. Overall it is a near fine copy. 


The State of the Art is a short story collection set mainly in Banks' Culture fictional universe.
