The Dying Earth
Hewett A1a

New York: Hillman Periodicals, 1950, 175 p., paper. [collection]

Philadelphia: The John C. Winston Company, 1953, 213 p., cloth. [juvenile novel]
This copy has been bound in buckram, a durable but ugly material often used in lending libraries. The DJ design has been printed on the cover. According to Hewett, and as usual with library bound books, this edition was not issued with a dust jacket.

Vrijbuiters in het Heelal Born: Verkenner, 1955, 192 p., paper. [Dutch]
This is the first Dutch edition of Vandals of the Void, specially printed for the Dutch Boy Scouts (Junior Jongensboek #51). It is a very small paperback. The cover art is by Rein van Looy.

These chapbooks were issued in a limited edition of 400 copies each, and later 111 copies were bound together in a signed hardcover edition. These two copies were previously owned by Roger Zelazny.
