  • Cover: Frank R. Paul
  • Notes:
    • "First Edition" from title page; number line 0-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 on publisher page.
    • There are four unpaginated pages with content preceding Roman numeral pages: title page, publisher page, dedication (to Hugo Gernsback and Frank R. Paul) and table of contents.
    • "All illustrations by Frank R. Paul except 'The Metal Giants' by Joseph Dustin" on contents page. Close examination of signature for the excepted illustration shows it to be Joseph Doolin and is credited as such here. As a result of this error, illustrations are not credited to Paul unless art is signed.
    • Story page numbers begin with the preceding illustration, resulting in a different starting page than shown in ToC.
    • There are short introductions reprinted from their original appearances in Amazing Stories by Hugo Gernsback for each story (except 'The Metal Giants') combined on a page before each section, labeled 'Short' (p.1), 'Medium' (p.57) and 'Long' (p.125).
    • 'Colophon' page, after pagination, gives credit to various aspects of the book's production.
    • Color photo and brief biography of Forrest J. Ackerman on back jacket flap.
    • Red boards with gold printing.
