    Description

    John W. Campbell, Jr.: Who Goes There? Signed Subscriber's Copy. (Chicago: Shasta Publishers, 1948), first edition, 230 page, blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine, 12mo (5.25" x 7.75"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Cover illustration by Hannes Bok. Shasta printed 3,000 copies, but this is one of 200 copies signed by Campbell and sent to direct mail customers. It is signed "John Campbell, Jr." on the front free endpaper. Campbell originally wrote the seven stories contained in Who Goes There? under the pseudonym Don Stuart. The copy presented here is fine, with very minimal age-toning on the spine and small yellow staining to the back board as the only flaws. The dust jacket shows only the most minimal edge wear. Previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown. An essential volume in any serious science fiction collection. From the Ventura Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
