A. E. van Vogt, SLAN, 1st paperback edition, signed by author

Dell #696, 1953. First edition thus. Arguably the author’s finest novel, Slan is certainly a milestone in science-fiction history. Its theme of benevolent mutants hounded by a society bigoted against them anticipates many later works and characters, including Marvel’s X-Men. Cover by Dell’s ace PB illustrator Robert Stanley. Signed on title page by van Vogt. Condition: Very Good. Some rubbing along front-cover spine hinge, minor spine creasing. Partial date stamp on top edge. But a fundamentally sound and still desirable copy with a signature.

PRICE INCLUDES SHIPPING AND HANDLING TO DOMESTIC U. S. BUYERS. NO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS.
