    Original tan cloth with titles stamped in red on spine. Minor shelf wear to boards. Contents slightly toned. Price-clipped dust jacket with light soiling and shelf wear especially at the extremities. Very good.

    When Pebble in the Sky was published in 1950, Dr. Isaac Asimov (1920-1992) was a biochemist conducting cancer research at the Boston University School of Medicine. His first novel, Pebble, which deals with nuclear power and time travel, predated the publication of his famous Foundation in book form by one year. At the time of his death, the Russian-born Asimov had become one of the most prolific writers in history, having written or edited over 550 books. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
