    Description

    John W. Campbell, Jr.: Who Goes There? 1951 Movie Edition. (Chicago: Shasta Publishers, 1951), second edition, 230 pages, brown cloth with green lettering on spine, 12mo (5.25" x 7.75"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket design by Malcolm Smith, based on the 1951 Howard Hawks' film The Thing from Another World. The film was based loosely on the title story of this collection. It appears that Shasta utilized the same textblock as the first edition published in 1948. The copy presented here is in fine condition, with very minimal wear to the edges of the book and dust jacket. Previous owner's bookplate affixed to front pastedown. A great companion piece to Campbell's original release of this book, and a rare book in its own right, especially in this condition. From the Ventura Collection.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
