Reprint of the second novel in Asimov's landmark Foundation series; originally published by Gnome Press in 1952. This edition, with jacket design by Roger Zimmerman, was first issued in 1963; we date this reprint copy to 1976 by means of the "R52" gutter code on p.227. NY: Doubleday & Company, . 227pp. 8vo. Red vinyl boards; silver spine titles; dust jacket. A touch of wear at tips, else fine in a near fine, unclipped ("$6.95") jacket. Nice copy.
