    First Edition of Asimov's First Book

    Isaac Asimov. Pebble in the Sky. Garden City: Doubleday, 1950.

    First edition. Octavo. 223 pages.

    Publisher's tan cloth with orange stamping. Even spotting to boards and spine. Toning to endpapers and some minor spotting along page edges. Slight lean to spine. Bookplate on front pastedown. Minor edge wear to dust jacket; spine fading. A very good copy of Asimov's first book.
