Gnome Press, New York, 1950. Stated First Edition, First Printing Beautiful fine/near fine book with a scarce original stunning near fine dust jacket. Only 5,000 copies of the first edition were printed of this iconic title in which Asimov's "Three Laws of Robotics" were postulated for the first time. Signed by Isaac Asimov on a laid-in signature.
The book is in beautiful condition with crisp red boards, with a black robot emblem to front, and black titles to spine. The boards are clean, a vibrant red and still maintain their original sheen. The book has no edgewear with sharp corners and with one edge bump. The end papers have a touch of slight toning, but otherwise are clean with No owner names, No bookplate and No bookstore stamps.
A beautiful fine/near fine example of this landmark title! The original first edition dust jacket is in stunning condition having benefited from some very slight restoration to the spine tips by an expert paper conservator and presents as a near fine example. The jacket is bright with vibrant colors, and with but only a very very slight hint of fading to the spine (the spine of this jacket is usually found faded completely to a grey tone). The stunning dust jacket has No rips, No chips, No edgewear, No stains, No rubbing and No foxing. Toning to the rear panel.
Stunning, handsome jacket presenting the book beautifully on the shelf. A very handsome example of this scarce, classic title in beautiful collectible condition with a vibrant book and stunning dust jacket.
