Item Description: Gnome Press, Inc., New York, 1950. Softcover. First edition, wrappered issue, or possibly second printing (see additional information below). Pages browned, two small chips to the wrappers, a very good or a little better copy. One of reportedly 2500 copies (we have also heard the figure of just 200 copies from another source, which seems to be discredited) of the first edition sheets bound up by the publisher in wrappers duplicating the dustjacket art. The intention and publication history of this variant is disputed: it was done either as an "Armed Services Edition" or as a short-lived experiment in paperback publishing. The publisher also issued three other titles thusly, but quickly abandoned the project. One source asserts that these were reprinted in 1951 from the original printing plates (retaining the first edition statement). At any rate this is by far rarer than the hardcover issue of the first edition. Basis, or more properly inspiration, for the 2004 film directed by Alex Proyas and featuring Will Smith, Bridget Moynahan, and Alan Tudyk. A rarity, the fragility of the construction assured that few of the copies survived. See this book in 3D on our site. Bookseller Inventory # 77154

In FAIR condition, in a Good dust jacket. Heavy water damage to red cloth covered boards, causing mottling and waviness to cloth, bleeding to paste downs and free end papers, on the verso of the dust jacket and just slightly on the side edge of the page block. Binding strained at front. Text and pages are clean. The dust jacket shows rubbing, chipping, soiling, light creasing and wear along the folds and edges. The hardcover is fair due to water exposure, though the book on a whole presents somewhat well wrapped in the original dust jacket. First Edition. Bookseller Inventory # 140903062
