Warsaw, Widawnictwo Ministerstwa Obrony Narodowej, 1961. First Edition. First Impression. The first publication of Lem's science fiction classic. Preceeding the first English edition by nearly a decade (and the French by three years). A highlight of science fiction and uncommon thus. Filmed three times. A very good copy in a good jacket, some rubbing to the edges of the jacket, spine tips reinforced with clear tape which has been folded over to the outer edge. Not too bad. The book itself is in decent shape with just a little pulling to the front hinge. Slight lean and small (price?) stamp to rear. [5826, Hyraxia Books].
