    Fritz Leiber: Gather, Darkness Signed First Edition. (New York: Pellegrini & Cudahy, 1950), first edition, 240 pages, red cloth with self cloth lettering surrounded in black on spine, 8vo (5.5" x 8.25"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket design and typography by Joseph Trautwein. Leiber has inscribed and signed the front free endpaper, "For Dirce Archer and the book (of mine) she likes best, Fritz". This story was originally serialized in Astounding Science-Fiction in 1943. The book is fine, with very minimal wear to the spine and corners. Each free endpaper shows two tape stains which do not affect any other part of the book. The textblock is clean and tight. The dust jacket displays some edge, corner, and spine wear, but is overall beautiful. From the Ventura Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
