Second Foundation

By Asimov, Isaac




Second Foundation is the third novel published of the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov, and the fifth in the in-universe chronology. It was first published in 1953 by Gnome Press. The term also describes the organization by that name which is the focus of the book. The organization's existence (and nothing more) had been revealed in Foundation, searched for in Foundation and Empire, and makes brief appearances in this novel. It would not be described in detail until Foundation's Edge.

First Edition, First Printing SIGNED by Asimov on a laid in signature. A stunning dustjacket that looks about new with no chips or pieces missing.

The binding is tight, and the boards are crisp with minor wear to the edges. The pages are clean. There is no writing, marks or bookplates in the book. Overall, a beautiful copy of this TRUE FIRST EDITION SIGNED by the author. We buy Asimov First Editions.
