The Stars Like Dust.

Asimov, Isaac

Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, 1951. First edition of Asimov's second science fiction novel. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Isaac Asimov on the title page. Light offsetting to the endpapers, near fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing to the spine. Uncommon signed. The Stars Like Dust is the first book in Asimov's Galactic Empire series. "Science fiction on the larger scale is Isaac Asimov's specialty. The scene of his new book, a rousing adventure story of the remote future, is the Galaxy, which, with its hundreds of inhabited planets, has been taken over by a dictatorial race called, appropriately enough, the Tyranni. A small group of rebels wage a determined battle against the dictators, giving Mr. Asimov plenty of opportunities to plot those involved and subtle twists for which he is known. Its clear writing and excellent suspense make this book a welcome addition to the science fiction lists" (The New York Times).

The Stars, Like Dust

Asimov, Isaac

Garden City: Doubleday, 1951. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Stated first edition with unclipped first issue jacket showing the proper price of $2.50. NF book in like jacket. Small line of residue at the foot of the front board from a removed tag; faint offsetting to the bottom of the rear pastedown. Jacket with some slight crinkling to tops of front and rear panels, and some gentle rubbing to the extremities of the spine. In all, a pleasing copy. The first part of Asimov's influential Galactic Empire series, it opens with a young man attending the University of Earth. Little does Biron Farrill suspect, he is about to be launched into a dangerous world of political espionage and potential assassination; but on receiving news that his father has been arrested and killed by the Tyranni, his narrative becomes one of survival and rebellion. At its release, a contemporary New York Times review called the novel "a rousing adventure story of the most remote future." It has since been seen as a commentary on feudalism and the U.S. Constitution. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
