New York: Pellegrini & Cudahay, 1950. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine / Fine. Item #012240
8vo., 240pp. Beautiful First Edition, bound in red cloth with titles in red against a black frame on spine. . Square, tight and clean throughout with just a hint of page toning. A touch of wear to spine ends but quite minor. Small unobtrusive ownership stamp by noted Oklahoma Sci-Fi collector Hardin Ramey on the half-title page. Equally attractive unclipped dust-jacket, ($2.75), has some gentle rubbing to spine ends and tips but is fresh and bright with no chipping, creases, toning or tears. Signed by the author on the title page. A gorgeous collectable copy, very uncommon in such high=grade condition, particularly signed. (Currey, p.270; ISFDB).
