Edition: First edition.
New York: Gnome Press, 1952. dj. Hardcover first edition - The first book of a prolific science fiction writer. Dustjacket illustration by Ric Binkley
Condition: Rather poor condition with worn edges, cracked front hinge, etc. but in a very good dj - the dj had been protected by a clear sheet of plastic which was taped onto the back of the dj and the book - so the discoloration from the tape affects the interior and the flaps of the dj and the endpapers of the book, but the cover illustration is bright and attractive.
