HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION being TRIPLANETARY & GALACTIC PATROL, Fantasy Press, 1955, first edition, some browning to the gutters and outer margins of the paste-downs as often found, else near fine copies. These 2 orphans most certainly lend credence to the fact that not all sets produced (allegedly 75) and distributed remained intact. I have had other strays from this highly desirable Fantasy Press production as well and have noted other dealers occasionally listing the same over the years. TRIPLANETARY is wonderfully INSCRIBED as usual by the author while GALACTIC PATROL is just SIGNED by Smith. Further testimony to there being less that 75 sets being sold in tact is evidence of simple binding mistakes. Indeed, our copy of GALACTIC PATROL has been mis-bound resulting in a text block of this title incorrectly stamped on the spine as CHILDREN OF THE LENS. All in all, a fun pairing for those who may not have the funds to be able to purchase the complete set of six. Bookseller Inventory # 11903
