De Camp, L. Sprague
THE WHEELS OF IF
Tight and almost square; spine is flat; rubbing wear to front and back. No stamps, marks or writing. The reason I grade this lower is a 3" fold-trace at upper right corner of front cover, which continued inside with bend-traces on the first 22 pages.
The Wheels of If - a collection of 5 stories plus the title short novel by L. Sprague de Camp. These originally appeared in Astounding or Unknown - from 1938 to 1941. Some cannot be found in any other de Camp collection. Cover artist Paul Lehr is one of my 3 favorite SF artists - this book has never had a better looking edition.
