New York: Gnome Press, 1950.
First edition, first printing of this science fiction classic. Signed by Isaac Asimov on the front free endpaper. Quite the superlative copy, bound in publisher's red cloth stamped in black. About Fine, with bumping to bottom corners of boards, and tape ghosts to front and rear endsheets (affecting Asimov's signature) and previous owner name to ffep as well. In a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with faint fading to the spine, small spot of discoloration near top of spine panel, faint rubbing and faint edge wear; light offsetting from red boards to blank verso of the dust jacket. A total knock-out. Item #140940769
