Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1982. The author's copy of the galley sheets of this fantasy novel, with her holograph corrections throughout. Mostly small changes, which were then reviewed by a copyeditor. With a notation on the front page that the corrections had been transferred to the master. Printed on rectos only, on cheap proofing paper, 12-1/2" x 9-1/2", folded once. Modest edge wear, but overall very good. A unique item. Together with a copy of the first edition. Wilhelm's 1976 novel, Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang, was a Nebula Award nominee and won the 1977 Hugo Award; her 1979 novel, Juniper Time, is one of David Pringle's hundred best science fiction novels.
