New York: Bantam Books, 1992.
Advance uncorrected proof of the first edition. Signed by the Neal Stephenson on the title page. Publisher's cream colored stiff wraps printed in black and stamped in metallic red. Very Good, with creasing and rubbing to wraps, soiling to spine. In a trial dust jacket, with publisher's price of $22.00 intact and rear panel blank beyond the UPC code (the first edition jacket has text above this). Jacket is Very Good, with some crackling to surface covering on spine, with some browning there; the jacket has been trimmed too tall for this proof and likely sized for the hardcover trade. Uncommon in the dust jacket. Item #140941717
