    Lester del Rey. "...And Some Were Human" A Dozen. With Drawings by Sol Levin. Philadelphia: Prime Press, 1948.

    First edition, second issue. Inscribed edition. Octavo. 331 pages. Several illustrations throughout the text.

    Publisher's navy blue cloth covers with the spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket designed by L. Robert Tschirky. Author's inscription on the front free endpaper. Faint water ring on the front cover, very minor bumping to the corners and edges, slight rubbing to the jacket, spine is slightly sunned. Altogether a tight and very good copy.

    Lester del Rey (June 2, 1915 - May 10, 1993) inscribed this copy in part: "To Walter Kahoe - In sincere admiration...And with hopes of seeing you here in the near future - Lester del Rey." This copy is the second issue due to the typeset title page and 1948 date. His first publication of collected stories, this work concentrates some of his best tales together in one work.

    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.
