    Lester del Rey. "...And Some Were Human" A Dozen. With Drawings by Sol Levin. Philadelphia: Prime Press, 1948.

    First edition, second issue, signed by the author. Octavo. 331 pages. Several small illustrations throughout the text.

    Publisher's dark navy blue cloth covers with the spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated dust jacket designed by L. Robert Tschirky. Very slightly rubbed covers, minor rubbing to the jacket, jacket spine and top edges are somewhat sunned, tiny closed tear at the head of the spine. Altogether a very good copy.

    Lester del Rey (1915 - 1993) published this captivating book as his first collection of short stories. This issue, signed by the author, features the cancel date of 1948 on the title page, and therefore is a second issue.
