Description:

First edition (number line with "1"). The extremely scarce hardcover edition. 254 pp. Illustrated throughout with full color reproductions of comic book covers and interior pages. A fine, tight example in bright, crisp, near fine dust jacket, price clipped and with very shallow crimp head edge of the spine strip and a mere touch of top edge toning. Marvel presents the origins and history of its most famous creations, narrated by the now legendary Stan Lee. Lee saw comics as more than dime store material and turned his characters into 20th (and now 21st) century mythology. Included are the beginnings of The Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Spider Man, Thor and others. Visionary as he was, even Lee could probably not have predicted when he wrote this book, the mutli-billion dollar value to which the Marvel franchise would grow. Virtually unobtainable in hardcover first ediiton. Bookseller Inventory # E17917
