Item Description: Doubleday, Garden City, NY, 1988. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. A prequel to the Foundation trilogy, set during Hari Seldon's lifetime and describes the invention of psychohistory. First edition (no statement of printing on copyright page, contrary to Doubleday's usual practice). A near fine copy (small area of glue residue on front cover) in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author shortly after leaving the hospital in early 1990. Asimov's handwriting is shaky and uncharacteristically unsure--he has crossed out part of the inscription and initially dated it 1980, correcting the year by writing over the 8 with a firm hand. Laid into the book is a handwritten fan letter to Asimov asking if the character Dors Venabili was a robot. Asimov wrote at the bottom of the letter, 'You'll have to read the next book for that--if I live to write it.' He did (Forward the Foundation) and she was. This book comes from a large collection of Isaac Asimov first editions, including many signed and especially fine copies. Signed By Author. Bookseller Inventory # 10466

To make matters even a bit more bizarre, the misspelled name also exists on the rear flap of FOUNDATION AND EMPIRE). Bookseller Inventory # 00627

Foundation was originally a series of eight short stories published in Astounding Magazine between May 1942 and January 1950. According to Asimov, the premise was based on ideas set forth in Edward Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, and was invented spontaneously on his way to meet with editor John W. Campbell, with whom he developed the concept. "The first four stories were collected, along with a new story taking place before the others, in a single volume published by Gnome Press in 1951 as Foundation. The remainder of the stories were published in pairs by Gnome as Foundation and Empire (1952) and Second Foundation (1953), resulting in the "Foundation Trilogy", as the series was known for decades" (Halmad, Spectra). The Foundation Trilogy was given a Hugo Award for the "Best All-Time Series" in 1966. Bookseller Inventory # 2496
