Binding: Soft cover
Book Condition: Near Fine
Edition: 1st Edition
Clarksburg, WV: Saucerian Books, 1963. First Edition. Stated. Quarto, stapled wraps, 79 pp. + book ads. Toning at the margins of the covers (see scan), otherwise a crisp Near Fine - rather startlingly, as this historic title from early UFO lore was inexpensively made and easily worn and damaged. A true, stated first edition of Barker's accumulation of information on the curious suicide of UFO author/researcher Morris K. Jessup. That his suicide - from "acute carbon monoxide intoxication", per the included facsimile of the actual death certificate included here- was questionable for several reasons (probably most notably his assumed activities with regard to the investigation of the Navy's alleged "Philadelphia Experiment", which see and with regard to the enigmatic "Carlos Allende") has made Jessup a subject for segments in a wide variety of documentaries. A nicely-preserved copy of a title which is extremely scarce as the 1963 true first edition. L63. Bookseller Inventory # 001316
