    Leigh Brackett. The Starmen. New York: Gnome Press, [1952].

    First edition. Octavo. 213 pages.

    Publisher's light gray cloth covers with the spine lettered in black. Illustrated dust jacket designed by Ric Binkley. Tiny closed tears to the head and spine of the jacket spine, minor bowing to the back cover. Altogether a very good copy.

    Leigh Bracket (December 7, 1915 - March 18, 1978) is best known for her screenplays such as The Big Sleep (1945), The Long Goodbye (1973) and The Empire Strikes Back (1980). The current work was one of her first science fiction novels, and was also published as The Galactic Breed (1955, abridged) and The Starmen of Llyrdis (1976).

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
