First edition. Octavo, original red cloth designed and lettered in black. Floral end papers. 230 pp +  pp ads at rear. Small remnants of paper tape on inner back cover, a little wear to cloth at tips, in general a bright, attractive, very good copy. The fragile inner hinges are intact, not cracked. ¶ A very imaginative early American Science Fiction novel. Interplanetary, travels through the solar system in an asteroid, and a planet of aliens who mature as vegetables in pods, and emerge as bird-people. Also issued in paper wrappers, though we have never encountered the paperbound edition. A very nice copy of a very uncommon book, rarely seen in this condition. Bleiler: SF: The Early Years, 584.
