George Lowther
The Adventures of Superman
Random House, 1942. First printing of the first novelization of a comic book character as well as the first Superman story to be credited to someone other than Jerry Siegel. Featuring four full-page color illustrations, six full-page black-and-white illustrations and numerous sketches by Joe Shuster. New York: Random House, 1942. Binding is sturdy, with light shelfwear to boards. A bit of offsetting to endpapers, an instance of foxing to fore-edge, some mild grubbiness, spot of sunning to rear corner, and a small stain to pages two and three. The unclipped dust jacket shows edgewear and chipping, most notably at the spine and joints, creasing to flaps, scratching and faint lines to spine, small spot of paint to front wrap and a flag lightly drawn atop a building, yet remains bright and vivid, presenting well in archival mylar. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: The Rare Book Sleuth, IOBA [Minneapolis, MN, U.S.A.]
