Item Description: Haffner Press, Royal Oak, Michigan, 1998. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Arfstrom, Jon (illustrator). 1st and Limited Edition. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 235 p. Special edition of 300, this no. 93, pictorial limitation page facing the title page. Edmond Moore Hamilton (1904-1977) is credited with writing, in 1936, the first hardcover compilation of what would come to be known as the science fiction genre, "The Horror of the Asteriod and Other Tales of Planetary Horror". This volume is a collection of three stories from the fragile pulp pages of Magic Carpet and Weird Tales magazines, and is the first hardbound edition of the stories. It features original artwork by 1940's Weird Tales illustrator Jon Arfstrom as well as an introduction by Edmond Hamilton's longtime friend, Ray Bradbury. Also included is an autobiographical article by Hamilton from the January 1934 fanzine, Fantasy Magazine (N.B., some of the above info from the Press' web site). ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in black cloth with gilt decoration and lettering on the spine designed to match the Arkham House editions of Robert E. Howard's "Skullface and Others" and William Hope Hodgson's "The House on the Borderlands", plain endpapers, pictorial limitation page serving as frontispiece, vignette of a creature on the title page, octavo size (just under 9" tall), pagination: (i-viii) being the preliminaries, (i)-iv being the introduction by Ray Bradbury, 2 blanks (v-vi), (1)-219, blank (220), colophon (221). The unclipped dust jacket shows the original price of $55.00, and displays wrap-around cover art by Jon Arfstrom on a black background, white lettering on the front and spine, short summary of book on the front flap, author and artist bios on the back flap. ***CONDITION: Volume is fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, the text block is crisp and tight as though the book has never been read, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is a minute amount of rubbing on the gilt on the spine, else fine. The dust jacket is not price-clipped and is also fine overall, the colours on the spine are bright and true to the front panel (no sunning), the edges of the jacket are crisp (no edgewear); our dust jacket is the first state, with the black matte finish, and does show a few light scuff marks (per the publisher the printer shipped the books unprotected, and the black in on the dust jackets scuffs too easily and mars the finish); there is also a very light trace of black ink residue from the cloth binding on the verso of the dust jacket where the flaps meet the panels, else fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. Bookseller Inventory # 16033222

Dust Jacket Condition: Fine (see description). Jon Arfstrom (signed) (illustrator). First Edition. ------------hardcover, a Fine unread copy in a Fine and Near Fine dustjacket(s), when initially produced the dustjacket was made with a matte finish which is/was prone to showing rubs and scratches, HAFFNER had the dj re-done with a gloss finish, on this copy the gloss copy is Fine and is over the matte jacket which is Near Fine with some very light rubbing to the verso of the jacket at the flap folds (small black smudges) ---as Haffner states: The first-state dustjacket for KALDAR was trimmed to the proper size but has a matte-lamination. Each copy of KALDAR was shipped without protective shrink-wrap from the printer and the black ink on the dustjacket scuffs too easily and mars the finish. The printer printed a second jacket with the proper lamination. ), this is #185 of 300 numbered copies but this copy has been signed by the artist Jon Arfstrom and dated 1999, -----this contains: "Introduction" by Ray Bradbury; Kaldar, World of Antares (Magic Carpet, Apr '33); Snake-Men of Kaldar (Magic Carpet, Oct '33); The Great Brain of Kaldar (Weird Tales, Dec '35); Afterword by Edmond Hamilton (Fantasy Magazine, Jan '34), scarce, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
