About this Item: Fairplay Publishers [1949?], New York, 1949. Stapled Wraps. Condition: Very Good. 14p. Top page corners dog-eared, property stamp on inside front cover, cover edges lightly worn. Black & green illustrations. "Dr. Leo Szilard is one of the handful of scientists who 'sold' President Roosevelt on the A-bomb project and then carried the project through to success. With the late Enrico Fermi, he directed the first phases on the work on chain reaction at Columbia University and went on to design the uranium pile at the University of Chicago that produced the world's first self-sustaining chain reaction, the living germ of the bomb. Off-duty reflections on the Frankenstein he had helped father, no doubt inspired the science-fiction story that follows. But he did not produce it for publication; he presented it orally on March 27, 1949 during a University of Chicago Round Table of the Air program. NBC listeners didn't hear it because it was delivered 'off the air' following the broadcast portion of the program. The story was included in the printed transcript of the program but it has never appeared in a form suitable for general circulation." 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # P4659
