Whiff of Death, A (Orig.: Death Dealers, The), Asimov, Isaac
2 Asimov, Isaac Whiff of Death, A (Orig.: Death Dealers, The)
U.S. Lancer Books. 1969 First Lancer Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Fine. 
       $.75 is the original price. 191 pages. Light beige paper. Tight binding. Purple on the edges. The first page has a small piece missing at the top, right corner.
In General: Some indents are on the Front Cover. Originally I saw these marks on another paperback and assumed possibly stacks of paperbacks had been on top of it. But this is the second book with the identical marks so I have to assume it's different types of marks caused during the manufacturing process even if they're different to the usual marks I often see from manufacturing.
