A first edition of Roger Zelazny’s The Last Defender of Camelot.

“There are three different Zelazny books with the same title and different contents. This is the first, and by far the scarcest — one of only 35 copies of the hardbound edition of the pamphlet version that contains only the title story.”

A first edition of Robert A. Heinlein’s The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.

“An acceptable copy of a book that is seldom offered.”
