    Eric North. The Ant Men. Philadelphia: The John Winston Company [1955]. First edition. Octavo. 216 pages. Illustrated endpapers by Alex Schomburg. Illustrated dust jacket by Paul Blaisdell.

    Red-cloth-backed. Black spine titles. Some wear and staining on binding. Overall very good. Dust jacket is very good with some wear, paper loss and cellophane tape residue.

    Australian author Eric North based this science-fiction novel on his experiences among the unique geological formations in the central deserts of "the land down under." This thriller with an unforgettable climax follows the exploits of Professor Silas Orcutt, an American geologist, who is captured by enormous ants with humanlike characteristics who live in "ghostly" underground caverns! Written during an era when giant insects were all the rage (the "mutant ant" film classic Them! was released in 1954), The Ant Men is a must for any first-rate sci-fi library. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.

    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.
