New York City: Doubleday Scince Fiction, 1951. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine / Near Fine. Item #005263
8vo., 2189pp. Beautiful First Edition, square, tight and clean throughout with little or no wear. A touch off off-setting to the gutters likely from the jacket flaps. Equally attractive unclipped wrapper, ($2.75), has a touch of wear to edges and tips but quite minor. Still fresh and bright with no chipping, creases or tears. Known more for here detective novels, DuBois rights about a successful Russian nuclear strike and the USA's unique method of resistance. (Clute & Nichols, Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, p.355). A very pretty collectable copy.
