RORK! Avram Davidson.

RORK! London: Rapp & Whiting, [1968]. Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. A government agent from Old Earth is sent to Pia 2, a remote frontier planet, to investigate the drop in the harvest of redwing, a plant used throughout the Galaxy as a medical fixative that grows only on Pia 2. Rorks are rather nasty spider-like creatures that prey on the native inhabitants of the planet -- who are the gatherers of redwing for the colonists. Hint of foxing to top edge of text block, else a fine copy in very good price-clipped dust jacket with foxing to spine panel and along flap folds and some light dust soiling. (#105791).

Price: $25.00
