THE SEEDS OF TIME. London: Michael Joseph, . Octavo, boards. First edition. Wyndham's second collection of short fiction. Collects ten stories. "A likable gathering of SF stories, most of them proficient treatments of fairly obvious themes. Among the most enjoyable are 'Pawley's Peepholes' (1951) and 'Dumb Martian' (1952), well-mannered SF comedies in a very English vein." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 319-320. Tiny circular private bookplate (22x17 mm) at top fore-edge corner of the front paste-down. A fine copy in very good or better dust jacket wear at upper corner tips and upper spine end, the latter with an internal tape mend. A very nice copy of a scarce book. (#162982).
