Uncommon in this somewhat early edition. In English; translated from the Russian original. Translation of: Chelovek-amfibiia. Originally published in English by Progress in 1959. / Aleksandr Beliayev (1884-1942), often hailed as the "Russian Jules Verne," stands as a significant figure in Soviet and Russian science fiction literature. His career as a lawyer ended abruptly due to tuberculosis, leading him to a Crimean sanatorium where he began writing. His works, including notable titles "Professor Dowell's Head" (1925) and "Amphibian Man" (1928), explore scientific advancements and their ethical implications. Despite facing Soviet censorship and criticism for his emphasis on individualism and potential misuse of power, Beliayev continued to contribute to the genre until his death in 1942. His works, still popular in Russia and translated into many languages, underscore his enduring influence in science fiction.
