Bullard of the Space Patrol
#1
Hello experts, On ebay last week, I saw two different jackets(only one had the book with it) of Bullard. The lone jacket was green with a man in a space suit saluting. The one on the book was a beautiful multicolored very "busy" jacket ( by Virgel Finley.) Both claimed to be "Firsts" Who is right? This is not a trivia question. I am just very curious. Happy Holidays Kind Folks--Paul Huh

Oh gosh. Now I've got to check my copy. I don't know which I have..

I thought that World always had the alphabet numbers on the copyright page. But I thought that the "H" was for Harcourt? I also thought that the numbers stood for month and year... It appears that I am wrong.

I need to check my references and my books.

Thanks, Irene, I still like the Finley cover better even if it isn't the First. Merry Christmas to you and the entire Norton Community. Later Kind Folks--Paul :wave:
