Book Description Exposition Press, Hicksville, New York, 1978. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Signed and inscribed by the author on the FFEP. Stated First Edition. Very rare book, signed or otherwise. By the one-time Hardy Boys illustrator. Gretter, who was also a philosopher and inventor, here takes on the subject of dreams. "Where do they come from? What are they? Why do we have them?" "Gretter relates his dream experiences and the powerful effect they had on his life. Dreams are a source of knowledge, a guide to action, yet cloaked in symbol. Not until he stumbled upon the key did their meaning become clear." That's called a tease. The covers of this book look fantastic, no exaggeration, no wear, no issues. Were it not for one issue I would rate this book Fine. The issue is a paper clip that left a darkened imprint at the top edge of the copyright page and on the top edge of the next five pages (6 in total, not 12). Otherwise those pages are perfect, as are all the others in the book. Bright, without a speck of soiling, no writing or markings, no creases. And the book is very solidly bound, no issues at all there. The Un-clipped dust jacket presents very well and has no loss, but on close inspection has a number of issues. The obvious one is the spot of soiling three quarters of the way down the front cover. There's also a little scuffing at the spine ends, although curiously there is no creasing or bending, a little scuffing also at the corners, rather minor. Lastly, there is darkening at the top of the rear flap, and a little at the top of the front flap. Also, there is light soiling or perhaps foxing at the top of the rear of the dust jacket, and a little near the spine. I'm doing a little 'micro-scoping' as it's not a cheap book, but take a look at the pictures and see what you think. Limited to 5 pics so contact me to see more. You can see for yourself the pricing and condition descriptions of the other copies for sale. I could just as well put the book up at a price close to theirs but I'm choosing to sell it for much less. Here's a little more on Clemens Gretter: Joseph Clemens Gretter lived a long and productive life, yet few readers knew him by anything other than his one word signature, "Gretta." The artist behind that signature was born on December 11, 1904, in the prairie country of western Indiana and grew up in Avery, Iowa. His schooling came at the Iowa Academy of Fine Arts, Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, and Art Institute of Chicago. His art career began in earnest in 1926 when he began drawing Hippity Skip Puzzles for the Chicago Tribune. During the lean years of the Great Depression, Gretter stayed busy illustrating series novels including the Ted Scott Flying Stories, the X Bar X Boys, the Air Combat Stories, and the Hardy Boys. He also made his way into comic books. In 1935, a former cavalryman and pulp fiction writer named Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson put together a 36-page, black-and-white, tabloid-sized comic book called New Fun Comics, the first comic book made up of all original material and the second newsstand comic book ever published. New Fun Comics #1 (Feb. 1935) marked several other firsts as well, including the first original science fiction feature for a comic book, "Don Drake on the Planet Saro." The author was Ken Fitch, the artist, Clemens Gretter. "Don Drake," probably inspired by Flash Gordon and Brick Bradford, ran in seventeen issues of New Fun and its successor, More Fun Comics, and even made the cover spot in April 1935. Gretter worked in comic books for many more years. His last known credited work showed up in Fatman, The Human Flying Saucer in 1967. Clemens Gretter continued as a cartoonist and illustrator after 1940. Between 1941 and 1948, he ghosted Ripley's Believe It or Not! He drew his own fact-based features, In This World and In Our Time, syndicated between 1953 and 1988. In semi-retirement, Gretter painted portraits and wrote two books, The Genius of Man and Chain of Reasoning (1978). He also invented a building panel and was granted a patent for it.
