Very good condition, ex-libris with associated marks and card pocket, slight lean and few words circled in pencil. Original dust jacket attached to book. All pages intact and complete. Very nice copy of an increasingly rare first printing. Scientific detail and fast-paced action make this an exciting "unknown plague" thriller. Author's 2nd book and first book under his name. His first book, "Dealing or The Berkeley-to-Boston Forty-Brick Lost-Bag Blues was written under a combination of his and his brother's name, Michael Douglas. 295 pages.
