    Poul Anderson. Vault of the Ages. By Poul Anderson. Jacket Design by Paul Orban. Endpaper Design by Alex Schomburg. Cecile Matshat, Editor. Carl Carmer, Consulting Editor. Philadelphia and Toronto: The John C. Winston Company, [1952].

    First edition, second binding. Octavo. xiii, 210 pages.

    Publisher's navy blue board covers with the spine lettered in white. Illustrated dust jacket designed by Paul Orban. Endpapers illustrated in gray tones by Alex Schomburg. Minor rubbing to the jacket, slight discoloration to the hinges. Altogether a near fine copy.

    Poul William Anderson (November 25, 1926 - July 31, 2001) served as President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, was a member of the Swordsmen and Sorcerers' Gild of America, and helped found the Society for Creative Anachronism. This work is a second binding due to the use of blue boards and white lettering rather than blue cloth covers and black lettering (Currey). Vault of the Ages was part of the Winston Science Fiction set.
