20th Century Discovery: The Planets, Asimov, Isaac
1 Asimov, Isaac 20th Century Discovery: The Planets
U.K. Carousel (Transworld Pub. Ltd.). 1971 #552-54015-7. First Carousel Books Edition. Mass Market Paperback. About Very Good. 
Twenty-five Pence in the U.K. 125 pages plus an Index. Medium beige paper. Contains: black and white photos.Tight binding.
Front Cover: Handling marks and light edge wear.
Spine: Two creases from book opening and edge wear.
Back Cover: Two small creases and finger marks as this is a black Cover and everything easily shows.
Story: This is a general Science/History thingee about everything, as usual. As I mention elsewhere when it comes to predicting things Asimov's so so at it. In this book he accepts the basic premises about when things were invented/discovered so it loses (for me) because it's "Old Hat" and not what I consider to be "real" knowledge. Just the mumblings of a parrot. It's getting so that everywhere I turn there's another book by Asimov lying around. It's a wonder Humankind doesn't start to erect statues all over the world of the man and we don't create a religion about him. He's prolific but ...not my cup of tea. 004712

Early Asimov,The  Book One, Asimov, Isaac
2 Asimov, Isaac Early Asimov,The Book One
Canada. Fawcett Crest Book. #449-02087. First Fawcett Crest Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good Plus. Water Tchd. 
       December, 1972. $1.25 is the original price. Light beige paper. Tight binding. Yellow colour on the edges. 302 pages which includes an Appendix.
In General: A couple of faint indents are on the Front Cover and the Spine was lighty touched by water but it's minor.
Story: Thirteen short Stories from Asimov's early years as a Writer. I don't consider him to be the greatest Science fiction Writer as the Advertising claims but he's good some of the time. He definitely is prolific. He's sort of like the Wal Mart of writing with his stuff being all over the place and all sorts of Subjects that aren't Science fiction. He's too pompous for my liking. 004542

End of Eternity, The, Asimov, Isaac
3 Asimov, Isaac End of Eternity, The
Canada. A Fawcett Crest Book. 1955 #449-02307. First Fawcett Crest Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good Plus. 
$1.25 is the original price. 192 pages. Near white paper. Tight binding. Yellow colour on the edges.

Spine: The usual line from opening the book and a 1" tear at the bottom of the right edge.
Back Cover: A half dozen fingernail indents from holding the book and a small 1" crease at the bottom edge. So so.
In General: Pages fifty-eight to seventy-nine have a paper problem in the middle of the pages and a crease occured when the pages were printed. At least I think this is what happened as I can't see any sign of water.
Story: Hmm. The Eternals have control over all Humans including their Past, Present and Future. Note: The only date mentioned in this book is what I wrote. 004770

Fact and Fancy, Asimov, Isaac
5 Asimov, Isaac Fact and Fancy
Canada/U.S. Discus Bks. (Avon). #380-00320. First Discus Books Edition (Avon). Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. Water Tchd. 
       March, 1972. $1.25 is the original price. 206 pages plus Advertising. Light beige paper. Tight binding. Contains: Black and white photos.
Front Cover: Some wear's at the Spine side and edges but nothing too much. A little corner crease's at the bottom right and there's a 1" indent at the top edge beside the right corner.
Spine: A couple of creases and one of them broke the back of the book from careless handling.
Back Cover: A small corner crease's at the bottom left and there are the usual manufacturing lines.
In General: After the first two pages is where the Spine needs repairing. If you purchase the book and want me to repair it please let me know ahead of time and I'll be happy to do it for you as a free Service as I don't mind. But with this book I think that while it will result in a stronger book the Spine will be a bit "bumpy" from the glue. I usually smooth everything as best as is possible but Spines are tricky to repair. 004831

Whiff of Death, A (Orig.: Death Dealers, The), Asimov, Isaac
7 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.
Story: Murder on Campus. 004987
