THE ATROCITY EXHIBITION.

[London]: Jonathan Cape, [1970]. Octavo, printed wrappers. First edition. Signed by Ballard on the title page. "Fifteen avant-garde pieces which may or may not constitute a marginally sf "novel." Ranging from "You and Me and the Continuum" (1966) to "Tolerances of the Human Face" (1969), they deal with the contemporary media landscape, a world of motorways, multi-story car parks, TV screens and glossy advertising. The central character's name changes from segment to segment, but he appears to be a doctor who is suffering from a mental breakdown. The author's most difficult book, but some readers regard it as his masterpiece." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. [23]. Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-24. A fine copy in a fine price clipped dust jacket with new publishers price sticker (£1.50 net) affixed to lower front flap. A lovely, sharp copy with no fading to the spine panel. (28446).
