Doubleday, Garden City, NY, 1978, BCE.  Hard cover, 240 pages.  Very good; corners show a bit of wear, spine ends bumped, binding sound, some age spotting on outer page block.  Dust jacket worn with short edge tears and small losses, some tears repaired on verso, old water marks and some stains.  Book interior clean and unmarked with lightly tanned pages and occasional age spot; black & white illustrations and tables.  ‘Here is the Good Doctor reading between the lines of the Periodic Table; explaining why there are Ice Ages – and when another cometh; playing with the tilt of the Earth’s axis; and speculating upon the properties of some (as yet) undiscovered elements.  Not to mention explanations of how Antarctic waters fertilize the Earth; ruminations on the planet beyond Pluto – and predictions as to when, and how, it will be discovered; a look at the brightest objects in the Universe; quasars (and which of these is the brightest); and a staunch defense of Asimov’s own corner of the Universe:  New York City.’ (from front flap)
