346 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "With the publication of Immanuel Velikovsky's 'Worlds in Collision' in 1950 a bombshell burst upon the literary and scientific scene whose reverberations continue to this day. Even prior to publication, the book was the subject of intense controversy. In it, Velikovsky suggested a catastrophic history of the solar system, which at once resolved innumerable historical, astronomical, and geological enigmas, while also challenging more than a few hallowed scientific dogmas. Through a concerted campaign of letter writing, a successful boycott of the original publisher's textbook department was undertaken by an elite group of American astronomers. Even as (it) hovered at the top of the national best-sellers lists, the publisher was forced to suspend publication of the book, and another firm, which had no vulnerable textbook division, took it on. Here for the first time is the full account of what actually transpired." Cigarette odour, very light browning to edges of textblock, light browning to top edge of boards, tiny dint on top edge of rear board. Dust jacket has light browning at edges, minor wrinkling at top of spine, very light rubbing.
