SOLARIS. Stanislaw Lem.


New York: Walker and Company, 1970. Octavo, cloth. First U.S. edition. Translated from a French translation by Joanna Kilmartin and Steve Cox. "...this novel combines profound philosophical speculation with the structure of traditional action-adventure SF, embodied in a clear, vivid writing style..." "A major work by any measure." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 3-115. Filmed twice, the first time a Russian release in 1972 directed by Andrei Tarkovsky (U.S. release in 1973) and filmed again in 2002 in the U.S. by Steven Soderbergh. A very good copy, some light soiling to white cloth, spotting to top edge stain, in a near fine dust jacket which shows a slight fade to orange color at spine panel. A very difficult title. (8395). Item #8395
