  • Cover: George Salter
  • Notes:
    • This listing is for the first edition book with the second state dust jacket.
    • The first edition has "Copyright, 1946, by Random House ..." on copyright page, but no statement of edition or printing. The boards are light tan cloth embossed in blue and gilt on front and spine.
    • The first edition book was issued in two dust jacket states. The first state jacket had two mistakes: the painted subtitle on the front begins "36 Non-Fiction Stories of the Future ...", and the printed blurb on front flap begins, "A collection of thirty-four stories, ....". It appears this flawed first state jacket was withdrawn quickly since it is very scarce. The more common second state jacket corrects both mistakes: the first line of the subtitle on jacket has been re-painted to say "35 Science-Fiction Stories of the Future ...", and the printed blurb on jacket flap now begins, "A collection of thirty-five stories, ....". A careful comparison of books with both states showed no other differences in jacket or book.
    • Contento1 says the first edition was published in August of 1946. Considering the scarcity of the first state jacket, it is reasonable to assume the corrected second state jacket also appeared in 1946, but its publication month is unknown, other than being between August and December.
    • Tuck and Contento1 mistakenly price this at $3.00, but the price "$2.95" is on top corner of front flap of the dust jacket (both states.)
    • George Salter's signature is on front of jacket, and "Jacket design by George Salter" printed on back flap of jacket. Salter is also credited for the cover art in Robinson, Weinberg and Broecker's Art of Imagination. "Designed by George Salter" is on copyright page.
    • Per Tuck, the 1953 second edition of the book (NOT this 1946 first edition book with second state jacket) omitted 5 stories: "He Who Shrank", "By His Bootstraps", "The Star-Mouse", "Correspondence Course" and "Brain".
