Description:

Octavo. 228pp. Original illustrated wrappers over red cloth with gold lettering on spine. Frontispiece. "The Mightiest Machine" is a science fiction novel by author John W. Campbell, Jr. It was published in book form in 1947 by The Hadley Publishing Co. in an edition of 1,200 copies. The novel was originally serialized in 5 parts the magazine "Astounding" beginning with the December 1934 issue. This space opera novel concerns the harnessing of energy from the sun and encounters with aliens who turn out not to be truly alien at all. It also touches on the legends of ancient civilizations on earth, Atlantis in this case, and what may have happened to them. "Astounding" reviewer P. Schuyler Miller described the 1947 edition as "perhaps the climax of the super-physics school of science fiction which 'Skylark' Smith had started." Everett F. Bleiler identified the novel as the paradigm of "the Campbell hard space opera," noting its "great quantity of fanciful and ingenious scientific extrapolations, fictional weaknesses, and polarized social simplistics that regard genocide with equanimity." This book is illustrated with numerous full-page b/w illustrations by Robert Pailthorpe. Moderate age wear on wrappers with rubbing and tiny chipping along edges. Wraps in overall good- to good, binding and interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
