DescriptionRaymond F. Jones. This Island Earth. Chicago: Shasta Publishers, .
First edition. Signed by the author "Kindest regards - Raymond F. Jones" on the front free endpaper. Octavo. 220 pages.
Publisher's decorative paper boards shelf-backed in green cloth with silver and yellow spine titles. Both states of the dust jacket present: Robert Johnson's original green version and the 1954 movie tie-in design. Book slightly shelf-cocked, with minimal wear to the edges and corners. Text mildly toned around the edges. Both dust jackets are in excellent condition, with mild toning to the original issue dust jacket. Overall, a near fine copy of a great atomic-era adventure.
"Warfare between two galaxies, and we mean galaxies; superior SF. Differs markedly from the movie after page 50 or so." (Chalker 568) From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
