A. E. van Vogt and E. Mayne Hull. Out of the Unknown. Los Angeles: Fantasy Publishing Company, [1948].

    First edition. Octavo. 141 pages. Six inserted illustrations.

    First publisher's light blue mesh weave cloth covers with the spine lettered in gilt. Light blue endpapers. First dust jacket as signified by $2.50 price on the front inner flap and the back of the jacket displaying photographs and information "About the Authors." Slight shelf wear and discolored spots to the covers, minimal toning to endpapers especially the rear pastedown, some soiling to back cover of the dust jacket, edges of jacket slightly wrinkled. Altogether a tight and very good copy.

    A. E. van Vogt (April 26, 1912 - January 26, 2000) married Edna Mayne Hull (May 1, 1905 - January 20, 1975) in 1939. Hull was not only van Vogt's wife and typist, but also a writing contributor and solo author, as exhibited by this work.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
