Description

Stanislaw Lem "The Cyberiad" first paperback appearance, published by Avon in 1976.

Fans of Philip K. Dick and classic sci fi geeks need to check out Lem if they are not familiar! This is one of his most famous novels.

This is a "very good+" to "near fine" copy. The only potential flaw is that the original owner had the habit of neatly penning his name on the bottom edge of the text block (see images). The covers are not creased, the spine is super tight and square, the red tinting to the text block edges is bright and uniform, with perhaps just the slightest hint of fade to the top, just so slight. A few small chips at the outer edge of the front cover, and the back cover has a smidge of surface wear on glossy coat in a few spots. When opening, a whiff of musty (had been mingled in a collection where some of the other books were musty), but will fade in a dry environment.

I have seen "new" books on bookstore shelves not as nice as this vintage first edition!

Will make for a great gift or acquisition for your own collection.

Will ship carefully packed and fully insured - US only please.

The book arrived in great condition just as described. It was like new! Amazing to find that quality still out there in a vintage book. There are some great finds in this shop :)

Can’t wait to gift this to my friend who is probably the biggest Paul Newman fan! It’s unique and authentic.
The item was shipped out quickly and arrived fast, it was also packaged very well.
It was as exactly as described.
Will definitely look at this shop again for amazing items!

FAQs

In most cases, I can offer combined shipping discounts on multiple items.

You do not need to do anything. Place your order for your items, and when I am fulfilling your order, I will credit back excess shipping fees to your account.
If an item gets stalled in transit, let me know. I can open a case with USPS to track it down. Please allow 2 weeks for me to work with USPS to locate your package.

If a package is marked "Delivered" but you did not get it, let me know. I will call your P.O. to speak with the carrier directly or have them check the GPS scan on the package. If theft is suspected, I will ask you to file a Stolen Mail Claim with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and your local law enforcement. These records are essential to help catch mail thieves.

If an item arrives damaged, hold on to all packing materials. I require photographs of the damaged item and the packing materials to refund. I may ask that the item be returned to me at my expense.
If you notice the error prior to receiving the shipping notice, let me know ASAP.

Unfortunately, once a package is shipped out to an incorrect address, there is little I can do to get it back.

Please make sure your address within Etsy is correct before finalizing your order.
Art & Prints:

To request a return, please contact me within 7 days of delivery. Late requests may be declined.

The item must be returned to me in the same condition as when we sent it - I.E - "as new", salable condition - for a refund. Return shipping at buyers expense.

Refunds will be credited upon our receipt of the item.

I recommend that you purchase tracking and insurance for the return package, as items lost during return shipping not insured are sadly: lost.

Refunds are for the item price only.

As per our policies page, we are diligent about our descriptions, and in more than 7 years on Etsy, have never had a return.
