Who Goes There? (Signed)
CAMPBELL, John W.
Chicago: Shasta Publishers, 1948.
Hannes Bok. First edition / First printing. Octavo. Hardcover, cloth boards in dust jacket. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Item #4626
SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper and therefore presumably one of an unknown number of subscriber's copies signed by the author in this way. A classic collection of seven stories, first published in Astounding Science Fiction in the 1930's by Campbell under the pseudonym Don A. Stuart. Basis for two Hollywood film versions including the 1951 RKO Picture "The Thing From Another World" and the 1982 John Carpenter classic "The Thing," starring Kurt Russell.
A near fine copy with gilt titles to spine of publisher's blue cloth, lightly rubbed with dusty top edge. Dust jacket with Hannes Bok wraparound illustration is bright and beautifully preserved, though with a touch of rubbing to rear panel, age-toning to spine panel, some mild edge wear, a tiny closed tear at upper edge of front panel, and internal tape reinforcement. Altogether, a very nice copy of a title, scarcely signed by the author.
