    Description

    A.E. van Vogt: Slan First Edition. (Sauk City: Arkham House, 1946), first edition, 216 pages, black cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine, 12mo (5.25" x 7.5"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket illustration by Robert E. Hubbell. Slan was originally serialized throughout 1940 in Astounding Science Fiction magazine. This book, published by Arkham House six years later represents two firsts: Arkham House's first foray into the growing genre of science fiction, and van Vogt's very first publication in book form. As such, this is an essential part of any science fiction collection. The copy presented here is in fine condition, with only the most minor edge wear to the book and jacket. A great chance to begin or add to a great science fiction collection. From the Ventura Collection.
