STRANGER FROM THE DEPTHS by Gerry Turner




STRANGER FROM THE DEPTHS by Gerry Turner. Doubleday, 1967. First edition statement, as typical of Doubleday title from this period. Boards are full light green cloth. The very attractive wrap-around jacket shows influences from the period, a psychedelic influence, and was done by Emanuel Schongut. A bit prone to leaning, pages are fairly resistant to toning except for the edges. No numbers for print run available.

Holy smokes! An actual original, unabridged copy! In 35 years of searching, I've only been able to find the Scholastic abridged paperback. Have you ever leafed through the latter to see if the editing was severe?

I don't imagine you'd lend this to me :(

Hi Anthony- I'm glad you could at least see the photos, however, I sold this book quite some while back. That's my job, I'm a used bookseller. Sorry I couldn't help you, but thanks for finding my blog. I'll be maintaining it better in May, once school is over.

I read this in JHS back in the early mid 70s. What a great book. I was able to find a paperback about 5 years ago and re-read it.
