About this Item

"First American Edtion / Fourth Impression." Originally published as a two-part serial in Astounding Science Fiction in 1941, under the titles "Universe" and "Common Sense." "Universe" was then republished in a Dell edition in 1951. This book copyright 1963. Price-clipped dust jacket shows minor wear to corners and a thin, jagged, horizontal line about a half-inch from bottom of spine, along with a matching fine white horizontal line near top of front panel, near spine. These lines are NOT closed tears -- no tears to verso. They're merely fine cracks to the emulsion, which has grown a bit brittle over the decades. Spine titles and spaceship design to front board in yellow. NO book club deboss. Thirty-one Heinlein titles listed opposite title page, with this book listed neither first nor last, but rather twelfth, which would usually indicate a late reprint. But none of the other titles appears to be later than 1963, leaving us to wonder how these titles are arranged. (No, they're not alphabetical.) Oddly enough, the answer appears to be "longest to shortest." Publisher's address to rear DJ flap given as "New York 16, N.Y." (antedates zip code.) 187 pp. Classic 1960s juvenile science fiction from the grand master. Reduced from $250. Bookseller Inventory # 002426
