This issue, prepared for Fantasy Press subscribers, has the standard Fantasy Press limitation notice "... limited to 3000 copies of which 300 are numbered and autographed," which here is erroneous. These copies were not numbered by the publisher, but this one (like many) has been misnumbered 263 in an unknown hand. A space opera featuring Arcot, Morey and Wade and their starship, the Ancient Mariner. Three stories featuring Arcot, Morey and Wade, collected as THE BLACK STAR PASSES, and the novel, ISLANDS OF SPACE preceded INVADERS FROM THE INFINITE. This novel, first published as a two-part serial in AMAZING STORIES QUARTERLY, Spring-Summer 1932, was the final chronicle of their interstellar adventures. Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-12. A fine copy without dust jacket as issued. The spine panel is entirely free of the sunning or age-darkening so common to this book. A lovely copy. A fine example of the dust jacket printed for the book in 1990 by publisher Lloyd Eshbach has been added to this copy. (#162233).
