DescriptionJames Blish. Rare Galley Proof of Dr. Mirabilis. N.p. [Brooklyn]: [no publisher], n.d..
Extremely rare galley proof of Blish's master work, Dr. Mirabilis. Folio. 96 pages.
Staple-bound printed folio sheets show significant age toning. Despite the brittleness of the paper, this manuscript is in surprisingly nice condition with sharp, uncreased corners and edges. The only areas of damage appear around the heavy staple at the upper left corner; last leaf has separated from staple. Includes Blish's "Preface to the American Edition," explaining the vagaries of international copyright law. Protected in a contemporary folder with marbled interior boards and a cloth case with leather label on the spine. An extremely unusual item in amazing condition. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
