Bester (Alfred) The Demolished Man
London, Sidgwick & Jackson, 1953.
First UK edition. 8vo. Original red boards. Dust-jacket, priced 9s 6d and with publisher’s printed overlay to foot of front inside flap.
The Demolished Man was the first novel by Alfred Bester, who up until its publication had been best known for his Sci-Fi short stories. It was the first Hugo Award winner in 1953. Uncommon in such a nice example of the rather cool dust-jacket, very different from the more austere first US edition.
