A FINE COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION. "Methuselah is said to be Shaw's only real engagement with science fiction. Shaw uses science fictioneering in Methuselah to add plausibility to scenarios and to keep readers entertained while he propounds his vision of the human destiny. His prime interest was not scientific, but political, as stated in the Preface where he discusses changes he considers essential before mankind can govern itself successfully.

San Francisco: Aunt Lute Books, 1996. First Edition. Small 8vo, gray cloth over boards in the dustjacket. 106. Fine condition. “As an introduction to Alice Walker, this small book presents two of Walker’s most interesting stories, ‘Roselily’ and ‘Am I Blue,’ and the beginning of her prizewinning novel, ‘The Color Purple.’ “Further, the pages of Patricia Holt’s introduction and the appendices of letters to the editors and meeting transcripts exemplify ways in which these fictional works have been the center of volatile controversy. They have been the subject of removal from tests (as in the case of the recent literature-based assessment tests in California), from school libraries and from school curricula. These controversies, played out in communities across the United States, cut to the heart of issues of censorship and democratic process. “Along with her Pulitzer Prize and American Book Award, Alice Walker has the honor of being one of the most censored writers in ...

These divergences are of course most apparent in the American parts of his atlases, as it was a period necessarily of constant change in the geographical conceptions of the New World.” [p. 372] This copy includes copious notes in Morison’s hand.
