Publication: Grayson & Grayson, Ltd, 1952, London

First U. K. edition. First impression. Originally published in the U. S. in 1950 Light offsetting to front and rear endpapers, with a London bookseller's rubber stamped address at lower front free fly leaf; else contents fresh and in fine condition, in a fine, bright dust jacket with a small closed tear to top of rear cover panel professionally restored. Asimov's best-known work, a collection of "Nine "postironic" robot stories, originally published 1940-1950, with new material added for continuity. Contains Asimov's famous Three Laws of Robotics and involves the history of U.S. Robots and Mechanical Men, Inc., and the strong-willed "robopsychologist" Dr. Susan Calvin" (Barron, Anatomy of Wonder 3-20). An attractive and exceptional edition, considerably scarcer than it's American counterpart. -- (Reginald 00564).
