Flying Saucers Have Landed
Leslie and Adamski
1953

This book is in horrible physical shape.  The binding is falling apart and the cover is in terrible shape.  So if the holding library wanted to preserve this for all time, it really didn’t do that job either.  Anyway it still brings me to my dilemma on weeding this kind of material.  It is always popular and I keep looking for something more concrete than condition and circulation numbers.

In the meantime, enjoy this super cool flying saucer which to my eye looks like my basement light fixture.

Live Long and Prosper!
