Giant of World's End, Carter, Lin

Canada. Belmont Books. #500-00753. First Belmont Books Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Reading Copy Due to a Defect. 
       February, 1969. $.50 is the original price. 141 pages plus Advertising. Tight binding. Green colour on the top edge but faded on the other two.
Front Cover: The "Defect" mentioned is that a BB pellet was fired at the left Spine side which penetrated for about half the book leaving it's mark. I smoothed it over but the only thing that will make that spot flat would be to paste a small piece of invisible Scotch mending tape over the thing to keep the pages normal again. Invisible mending tape holds up quite well over the years. DO NOT USE ORDINARY SCOTCH TAPE AS IT'S USELESS.
Back Cover: (?) Ink marks are on the Cover. I tried to remove them but they seem to actually be part of the Cover.
Story: Another Sword and Sorcery Fantasy Novel from Lin Carter. If it wasn't for this goof and his pellet shot the book would be close to Mint and at a higher price. 004379

Canada. Pocket Books Cardinal Edition. #C156. Second Cardinal Edition (Pocket Books). Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. Water Tchd. Cover Art: Bacon, Paul. 
October, 1955. 485 pages plus Advertising. Medium beige paper. Tight binding.
Front Cover: A 4" slanted crease's at the bottom of the right corner and there's some light wear at the right and bottom edges.
Spine: A crease from book opening and some small water wrinkles. Nothing very much, though.
In General: A previous Owner's name is written at the top of the first page.
Story: Twenty-one Short Stories.
Note: Everyone lists this book as being published in 1954. This is not actually true as a Second Edition was printed in 1955 and this is the copy I'm listing. Sometimes Dealers get lazy and don't read what's printed, which I find annoying. If you're supposed to be a Professional Dealer then act like one. This copy's listed at a proper price for age, condition and printing. And it's 1955, not 1954 as all the sheep are stating. Remember. You usually get true and accurate information at as we take the time to do our research. Until we get too decrepid to do anything except breathe, of course. 004885
