DEMON SEED. Toronto, New York, London: Bantam Books, . Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Bantam Books N7190. "It was the first mating of a human female with a sensually self-programed, murderously intelligent -- computer. No woman had ever been violated as profanely. Subjected to the inhuman love of Proteus, she became a slave, forced to submit entirely to his will. At first, Proteus shaped her personality to suit his own obsessive desires. Then he began to prepare her for the most perverse destiny of them all. Proteus had chosen her to bear his child -- DEMON SEED, the stunning novel of a new erotic dimension." - publisher's blurb.

Rub/wrinkle at upper fore-edge corner of front cover, some rubbing along fore-edge of front cover, a nearly fine copy. (#164515).
