TYSON, Vivian. The Space Reports. New York: The Express Press, 1970.
8vo., blue painted cloth boards; in the original blue dustwrapper with lettering and decorative devices in red; the text printed horizontally; unpaginated [pp. 156]; book and text-block near-fine, sight wave to pages with the odd damp-mark; the jacket a little rubbed, with some dampstaining and rumpling; silverfish damage to lower rear flap fold; still very good.
First edition of this self-published science-fiction novel about an alien's experiences of human life in early 1970s Manhattan. The material was meant to be left with the President of the United States "or perhaps with the American Air Force Department, but we were not taken seriously, so we have left our findings with an adjuvant on your planet."
*Correction*: "The book you are about to read is a documented treatise and by no means is it a book of science fiction", or so the inner front flap warns us.
