Item Description: hardcover. Book Condition: very good. Amherst Press, Wisconsin 1966. Largish octavo publisher's cloth; 422pp, numerous photo and line illustrations. Copy no. 95 of the 'Original Edition First Printing Limited Edition' of who knows how many copies, warmly inscribed and signed by Hyman to a fellow lawyer in February 1966. The culmination of a decade of passionate and voluble campaigning for legal peace in space. Hyman describes this as an "humanitarian bill of rights for the world" and offers folding facsimiles (in English and Spanish) of the Magna Carta as adopted by the Inter-American Bar Association in 1961 and, with an additional article, again in 1965. The book itself is a pretty unrestrained polemic that oscilates between cold war terror and Flash Gordon futurism enlivened by some unassuming but effective illustrations. I notice that while such things as space 'traffic cops' and traffic lights are mentioned I couldn't find any discussion of rubbish removal. Bookseller Inventory # 2025
