DARK OTHER [THE], Weinbaum, Stanley G.
205 DARK OTHER [THE]
Weinbaum, Stanley G.
Fantasy Publishing Company, 1950, 

First Edition, Soft cover, Fine, Good. Book. Arfstrom, Jon
First edition, first printing. Soft cover bound in pale green wrappers with black lettering. Bound with jacket illustrated by Jon Arfstrom stated on front jacket flap. No printing statement on copyright page. Binding priority is the "C" state per Currey, pg. 510. The book shows some age-darkening along the edges, normal for a book this age, but otherwise is clean, square without stains or previous owner's marks. The jacket is intact except for two large tear-outs: the first is at top head of the spine panel and measures 4 cm across and 2 cm down. The second tear-out is across the bottom edge of the front panel - it measures 9 cm in length by 1.5 cm at it's deepest. The jacket is extremely fragile and has several closed tears, the longest at the crease between the front flap fold and front jacket panel. To see the full extent of the jacket's condition, we've scanned the jacket in sections. First is the front jacket panel, then the front panel, spine and front flap, then the last scan is the the rear panel and back flap.
