    Description

    Isaac Asimov: The Caves of Steel. (Garden City, New York: Doubleday, 1954), first edition, 224 pages, blue cloth with red lettering on spine, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Deckled fore-edge. Jacket illustration by Ruth Ray. First serialized in Galaxy magazine in 1953, The Caves of Steel is the first novel in Asimov's Robot series, which contextualized the robot in modern science fiction. The copy presented here is in very good condition, with some age-toning to the edges and endpapers. The jacket shows minor edge wear, and some sunning to the spine. Still, this novel is an essential piece of Asimov's milieu, and a fine addition to any science fiction library. From the Ventura Collection.
