The Foundation Trilogy: Foundation, Foundation and Empire [and] Second Foundation

New York: Gnome Press.

1951, 1952, 1953. Three volumes, all first edition, first printings and all in first state bindings and jackets where applicable, as per Currey. All three volumes are signed by Isaac Asimov and uniformly inscribed to the same previous owner on the title page. Bound in publisher's original cloth-affect boards in original unclipped dust jackets.

All volumes are Very Good to Near Fine with a musty/moth ball odor and toned pages, in Near Fine jackets. Foundation is lightly stained along the bottom edge of the cloth affecting a depth of at most 1.5 cm, light scratch across front cover, the dust jacket is toned along the left side of the rear panel. Foundation and Empire is foxed along the top textblock edge and the covers are lightly foxed ad well. Second Foundation shows foxing to covers, top edge foxed and lightly rubbed and there if very light evidence of tape residue to the top and bottom edges of the boards.

A lovely set of this epic science-fiction trilogy, which was awarded a special Hugo in 1966 for best all-time series. Very scarce with all three volumes signed directly to the title pages and inscribed to the same owner, and though it should go without saying, free of all the monkey-business and slight of hand that is associated with a book "signed" by way of a bookplate.
