SIGNED EDITION. This copy has been signed by the author, with a short inscription on the title page. The book is in Very Good+ condition and has a Very Good- dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, bright condition. There is some light rubbing and beginning edge wear to the spine ends of the book covers. The text pages are clean and bright. Laid-in is a copy of the corrected map . The revers of the map has a previous owner's inked math problem (covering most of one side of the blank reverse). The dust jacket has some rubbing and edge wear to the spine ends and corners along with some generalized rubbing to the rear panel. Unfortunately, a previous owner has used a blue ink pen to "enhance" the photo on the rear panel - giving the author an inked mustache, eyebrows and eye and nostril circles. Some of the enhancements have been partly erased, leaving white patches. "The Dragon of the Ishtar Gate is a historical novel by American writer L. Sprague de Camp, first published in hardcover by Doubleday in 1961, and in paperback by Lancer Books in 1968. The first trade paperback edition was issued by The Donning Company in 1982. [1] The book was reissued with a new introduction by Harry Turtledove as a trade paperback and ebook by Phoenix Pick in September 2013. It is the third of de Camp's historical novels in order of writing, and earliest chronologically. It is set in 466-465 BCE, the last years of the reign of King Xerxes I of Persia."
