339pp Large octavo [23.5 cm] Lime green cloth covered boards with a red ink stamped title on the spine, and a red ink stamped vignette on the front cover. Very good. The edges of the spine and covers are gently bumped and rubbed. There is a slightly more prominent indentation in the bottom edge of the front cover. The spine is slightly rolled. The edges of the text block are very gently soiled. There are small price-sticker stains on the rear free endsheet and flyleaf. The pages are very mildly browned. The dust jacket is in good condition only. Rubbed, creased and mildly age-toned. There are numerous small losses from the edges and folds. The largest loss is 2 inches wide by 1/2 inch deep. There are also 4 or 5 closed tears in the edges. The longest closed tear measures 5 inches long. There is a large, but light moisture stain on the rear panel. This stain is 4 and 1/2 inches tall by 3 inches wide. The spine is subtly faded.
From the dust jacket- "For the science fiction fan, the stories here represent some of the finest yarns published by Astounding Science Fiction and the American Boy- two magazines known for their early recognition of this popular genre."
