Xenu-phobic: The controversial founder of Scientology signs an early instructional book

Pulp- and science-fiction author (1911–1986) who became a lightning rod for controversy as the founder of the Church of Scientology. In building a worldwide empire and attracting scores of celebrities to its ranks, the Church and its members have attracted unprecedented media attention—much of it attended by scorn and skepticism—and have become embroiled in scores of lawsuits over financial matters and government regulation. Signed book: Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought. “Translator’s Edition.” London: Hubbard Association of Scientologists International, 1956. Softcover, 5.5 x 8.5, 64 pages. Boldly signed in fountain pen on the title page “L. Ron Hubbard.” Light vertical bend and mild soiling and handling wear to covers, otherwise fine condition. Uncommon in this format and from this early date! R&R COA.
