First printing. Classic and rather uncommon novel by Silverberg. This story of the invasion of Earth by otherworldly beings is described on the dustjacket flap as ". . . idealistic, inspiring, and lyrical, this novel is an allegory of the classic human dilemma in all its painful irony: man's inability to live peacefully on Earth and his endless struggle to try. . ." This book is an expanded vesion of the novella which was a 1968 Nebula and 1969 Hugo nominee. Dust jacket art by Jack Gaughan. SIGNED on the half title page. Ex-library with relatively few markings but missing front endpaper, overall good in a near fine and unmarked dustjacket. .
