1 Russell, Mary D. The Sparrow
New York Villard 1996 0679451501 / 9780679451501 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Blue and black paper-covered boards. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Gold endpapers. 408pp. This copy is first issue and meets all points: page 16, line 12, reads 'karstic' instead of 'karst.' and page 95, second paragraph, has 'thirty two feet per second' instead of the corrected 'thirty two feet per second per second.' There is mild bumping to the heel of the spine and the book has a small remainder dot. Otherwise: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is lightly rubbed and has a few faint scratchings; no chips, soiling, or tears. The original price is intact.

"...'The Sparrow', an astonishing literary debut, takes you on a journey to a distant planet and to the center of the human soul. It is the story of a charismatic Jesuit priest and linguist, Emilio Sandoz, who leads a twenty-first-century scientific mission to a newly discovered extraterrestrial culture. Sandoz and his companions are prepared to endure isolation, hardship and death, but nothing can prepare them for the civilization they encounter, or the tragic misunderstanding that brings the mission to a catastrophic end."
