Octavo, original pictorial wrappers.  pp. The first appearance in print of WHAT MAD UNIVERSE, later re-worked and published as the novel of the same name (1949). Tears to covers - one scrape, and a 2 cm x .75 cm chip to the fore-edge of the front cover. Paper off-white. Very good copy.
¶ WHAT MAD UNIVERSE is a parody of the pulp SF story. The novel functions both as a critique of its genre and a superior example of it. It may have provided a model for Philip K. Dick when he later created his own stories set in alternate personal realities.
