New York: Gnome Press, Inc., 1950. First edition. A lovely first edition of the book, in Fine condition with just trivial dust along the top edge, otherwise bright clean and sharp. In an immaculate, Fine dust jacket, without any toning, foxing or wear. This copy inscribed by Asimov directly on the title page, "To Dick, Isaac Asimov | 25 Sep 81." A book rarely found in this condition.
The author's second work, a collection of nine interwoven stories dealing with a futuristic world where humans and robots interact on a daily basis. Asimov's "Three Laws of Robotics" first appear in this book, creating a framework that would be used in all of his robot fiction, how a robot interprets those laws becoming a driving mechanism for many of the works. Adapted for several television and film programs, the most famous, "I, Robot," starring Will Smith was loosely based on themes from the book and Asimov's "Three Laws." Fine in Fine dust jacket.
