An exceptional copy of the first American edition of the first of the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett, introducing readers to the thanatophobic wizard Rincewind. The dust-jacket was actually originally printed in the US for the English publishers Colin Smythe, who were not happy with the content on the inside flaps and reissued it with overlays. The UK first is notoriously scarce to find in good condition first state dust-jacket, a five-figure book these days, so this example presents an excellent opportunity to acquire a superior copy to the same design, depicting Great A'Tuin swimming through space with the discworld supported by four elephants on his back. The title was subsequently reissued with cover artwork by Josh Kirby, who would go on to do all the Discworld covers up until 2001.
