LE GUIN, Ursula K.
Rocannon's World; Planet of Exile; and City of Illusions. [The first two published dos-a-dos with:] The Kar-Chee Reign, by Avram Davidson; and Mankind Under the Leash, by Thomas M. Disch.
New York: Ace Books Inc., 1966, 1966, 1967. 3 volumes (two being 2 works dos-a-dos in 1 volume), small octavo. Original illustrated wrappers, orange page edges. Some light rubbing to extremities but an excellent set. First editions, first printings, of Le Guins's first three book publications, each copy inscribed on the title page to the same family: "For Patrick Christopher also a first born and his parents Ursula K. Le Guin, 1987"; "For Celia, Greg, & Patrick Christopher with best wishes, Ursula K. Le Guin, 1987"; and "For Patrick Christopher, Celia, + Greg, All good wishes - Ursula K. Le Guin, July '91". The recipients were also from Oregon and thus perhaps friends of the author. Le Guin's "also a first born" inscription in Rocannon's World must refer to that novel's status as her book debut, with the trio making up the first three novels in the loosely connected "Hainish Cycle", which would go on to include her acclaimed novels The Left Hand of Darkness (1969) and The Dispossessed (1974). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
