Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The first edition of this work. This first U.S. printing only ran to five-thousand copies.

In the original unclipped and unrestored dust wrapper.

A collection of nine science fiction short stories. All the stories were originally published in various American magazines, such as 'Super Science Stories' and 'Astounding Science Fiction', between the years 1940 and 1950.

The stories are all woven together by the character Dr. Susan Calvin, who tells each of these exciting stories to reporters in the twenty-first century.

Isaac Asimov details his large fictional history of robotics, and is an important example of twentieth century science fiction.

Asmiov's important science fiction work was immediately popular when first published, and was later adapted into the 2004 film of the same name starring Will Smith.

Containing 'Robbie', 'Runaround', 'Reason', 'Catch That Rabbit', 'Liar!', 'Little Lost Robot', 'Escape!', 'Evidence', 'The Evitable Conflict'.
