Book Description Farrar Straus and Cudahy, New York, 1956. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition; First Printing. Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 184 pages; 1st edition. Philip MacDonald's novel treatment of the Cyril Hume screenplay for the grounmdbreaking science fiction film starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, and Leslie Nielsen. A snug clean copy in original dust jacket with $3.00 issue price intact to unclipped front flap. Spine just a hair cocked but overall the book is in wonderful condition. The dust jacket is crisp edged and clean but has had the unfortunate attention of silverfish to all the white title lettering of the spine panel. The damage is confined to the surface of the spine panel and very largely follows the outline of the lettering with something in the color/ink clearly not to the bugs' liking. The result is a sort of nearly attractive crazing to the title lettering at spine. The front and rear panels are bright and clean with just trace helf rubbing at edges. The terminal leaf of the novel is the Postscript of pages 183 and 184. In this copy it is a cancel (that is, a page pasted in to the existing binding) suggesting that the Postcript was added after the book had already been printed. There is a small snag to the paper in the gutter of this final leaf, apparently caused by the binder's glue used tipping the page in. VG++/G+. Bookseller Inventory # 21235

Book Description Farrar, Straus & Cudahy [1956]., New York, 1956. Octavo, boards. First edition. Novelization of the 1956 MGM film starring Walter Pidgeon, Leslie Nielsen, Anne Francis, and Robby the Robot. "The film's lasting importance as science fiction . derives in great part from the fact that its story is the stuff of written SF of the period -- a fact underscored by W. J. Stuart's novelization, which treats the film's theme in greater depth and with the seriousness it deserves." - Gunn (ed), The New Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, p. 178. The film's plot, an updated version of Shakespeare's "The Tempest," is "very sophisticated for the time -- astonishingly so for a film originally designed for a juvenile audience . The visual treatment of 'Forbidden Planet' was unsurpassed until '2001: A Space Odyssey,' made 12 years later. Despite its flaws, it remains one of the few masterpieces of SF cinema." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 437. Small abrasion to boards at lower left front corner, a very good plus copy in very good plus dust jacket with mild rubbing to corners, light rubbing to spine ends, small closed tear at lower edge of rear panel, and several small rub marks to spine folds.
