New York, Doubleday, 1954. First Edition. First Impression. A lovely copy, in near fine condition. British SF author William F. Temple's copy. Some minor rubbing and bumping to the top of the spine and marginal at the lower tip. Colours remain bright and the book presents beautifully. A rare Asimov, in rare condition. Presented with a review slip from Doubleday, also included is a three-page typed review of the book by William F. Temple. Overall a great copy of this wonderful Asimov book.
