Paris, Editions Rene Julliard, 1963. Limited Edition. Paperback. A near fine copy. Uncommon. An important work of science fiction and the source for one of the best known films in the genre. The Planet of the Apes, preceding the UK edition which was published the following year (the US edition was published in 1963 also). This is the deluxe large-format edition and the most desirable edition of the book. A card signed by the author is included, but unattached. The glassine jacket is torn quite significantly to the rear, but remains complete. Edges and endpapers a little foxed. Overall a pleasing copy of a difficult book to find. A highlight of science fiction collectin. [7776, Hyraxia Books].
