Back Cover

Printing History
A Berkley Medallion Book published by Berkley Publishing Corporation.  Copyright 1961.  Published by arrangement with G.P. Putnam's Sons.  Berkley Medallion Edition, March, 1968.  Forty-Fifth Printing.  The price of the book was $1.95.  (This particular copy was probably printed in the mid to late 70's.)



This is probably my second-favorite cover and as you can see from the condition, the most dog-eared and re-read.  This copy was given to me as part of a four-book boxed set that included The Past Through Tomorrow, Time Enough for Love, and I Will Fear No Evil .  It went with me to college and got loaned out to all my friends and, surprisingly, came back all in one piece.

The quotes on the back cover are a longer version of the one on the front of the 1962 cover and the same as the backs of the 1967 and 1968 covers.
