THE INSTRUMENTALITY OF MANKIND. London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1989. Octavo, boards. First hardcover edition. A posthumous collection of fourteen stories introduced by Frederik Pohl. "The quality is variable, but the collection is worth having because all of Smith's sf work was linked into one grand future history -- small in terms of the wordage, but vast in its imaginative implications." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 187. This edition follows the text of the 1979 Ballantine Books edition. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#82453).

Price: $35.00
