London, Dennis Dobson, 1950 [1967]. First Thus.First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. There appears to be some confusion over this edition, with a number of people assuming the 1950 date in the book is the date of publication. This is incorrect and refers to the copyright of Asimov's work which was indeed first published, in the US, by Gnome. The first British edition was published in 1952 by Grayson. This is a later edition published in 1967 by Dobson. This is evident in the price of 21s (Grayson was 8/6), the advert for The Rest of the Robots on the rear flap, which was first published in 1964, and the fact that the Dobson Science Fiction series commenced in the mid-1960s. So let's disavow ourselves of the notion that this is a first British edition, it's not. That said, it's a nice edition and the third British hardback overall (the second being the SFBC edition). It's also quite uncommon. Some rubbing to the black of the jacket and edges, spine is unfaded, some dustiness to edges. Cover art by Richard Weaver [8452, Hyraxia Books].
