In General:Page 281 had something stick to a small portion of the upper part of the page but it's not there now and I don't know what it might have been.
Story: I found the book to be interesting reading once the Astronauts were on the Moon and commenting about things although a lot of what they said was left out from tapes I've watched. But the time went by quickly reading. I think that whoever buys the book will find it ejoyable reading. 004946

First on the Moon, Sutton, Jeff
4 Sutton, Jeff First on the Moon
U.S. Ace Books Inc. 1958 #F-222. First Ace Book Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Good. 
$.40 is the original price. Tight binding. 192 Pages. Medium beige paper. Yellow colour on the edges.
Front Cover: The usual crease by the Spine from book opening and several indents. Some wear's at the edges.
Spine: A couple of light creases from book opening and a " bit of a tear's at the bottom edge.
Four vertical indents and some kind of round indents are at the top of the left corner for 1".
In General: The indents mentioned as being on the top of the left side of the Back Cover corner continue at the same spot for a number of pages. They also start at Page seventy-one and continue to the back of the book. Could they be teeth marks?? Possibly a little kid's work. A "+ beige mark's at the bottom of the page from Page seven to Page ten. It looks more like a glue spot rather than a water drop.
Story: The Russians are trying to prevent the U.S. from reaching the Moon and claiming it as theirs. I figure that in quite a few instances Science fiction predicts possible Future outcomes before they happen which's one reason to read Science fiction so a person gets to thinking about things. 004464
