THE NEW ADAM. Stanley G. Weinbaum.


Chicago, New York: Ziff Davis Publishing Company, 1939. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1-3] 4-262 [263-264: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank]. illustration by Phillip Grushkin, cloth. First edition. Weinbaum's second, and first commercially published book. "A classic 'superman' novel. An attempt to examine seriously and thoughtfully the possible career of an evolved man born into the contemporary world. Less devoted to social criticism than Stapledon's Odd John, it appears to have been similarly inspired by Bereford's The Hampdenshire Wonder." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-136. A fine copy, small tape abrasion to front free end paper, bookplate to front paste-down in an attractive near fine dust jacket with some mild shelf wear to spine ends and corners. (11261).
