First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Item #4752
New York: Reinhold Publishing Corporation, 1939. First Edition. Signed without inscription on full title by Edward Teller. Octavo; 544pp. Navy cloth binding with lettering stamped in gold on spine. Corners of cover have been rubbed through to boards and there is some fraying to the head and foot of the spine. Top right corner has been bumped and some of the first few pages have a slight crease. Binding remains sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. Title page states: "With Theoretical Discussion by James H. Hibben and Edward Teller, Professor of Physics, The George Washington University." This is an unusual title to find signed by Teller, a physicist considered by some to be the "father of the hydrogen bomb."
