Description

    Isaac Asimov: The Caves of Steel with Signature Card Laid In (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. Deckled fore-edge. Signature card signed "Isaac Asimov" laid in. 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 dust jacket is very good, with minor edge wear, some sunning to the spine, a small spine chip and a very small closed tear on the front panel. Still, this novel is an essential piece of Asimov's milieu, and a fine addition to any science fiction library.
