    John Brunner - Honky in the Woodpile with Dust Jacket (Constable & Co. Ltd., 1971). An unusually nice copy of the first edition of a quite rare fairly early novel by the author John Kilian Houston Brunner, first published in 1971 by Constable & Co. in 1971. The binding is firm, square and tight, and surprisingly little browning of paper throughout. There are no markings inside. Brunner was a prolific author, and used a variety of pen names, but it is fascinating to read his relatively early novels, particularly a mystery such as this, and the chance to do so is now becoming more and more limited. Rare copy with the author's own personal bookplate present. Signed by John Brunner.
