In Pringle, Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels no 99. This is the earliest uncorrected proof (384 pages) in plain light blue covers, and is taken from the author's own typescript. It states:''IMPORTANT NOTE. This early proof is reproduced from the author's uncorrected and unedited typescript. Nothing should be quoted from this version without being checked against the final copy''. Note: Gollancz issued a later proof (254 pages) completely re-set from this earlier version with white covers and a b/w image of a steamboat on the front (and some early quotes on the back cover), which states: ''This is an advanced reading copy from uncorrected proofs''. It was this later second proof that was sent out to reviewers and bookshops.
