No previous owner markings - all pages are clean and unmarked with a touch of toning. Inside covers have a touch of toning. The Making of Star Trek is a behind-the-scenes description of the creation of Star Trek: The Original Series, the first Star Trek series. A multi point of view reference book, in which input from a wide range of production contributors, from studio executives to costumers, was processed, it was the first of its kind. Liberally illustrated with two extensive black and white photo sections, this book also contains as illustrative backdrops, memos, technical information, and production concepts from the original pilot through the first two seasons of The Original Series. Published in 1968, while the Original Series was still in production, the book holds the distinction of being the very first officially licensed reference book of its kind on the subject of Star Trek, as well as adding a third element to the infant Star Trek print franchise after the first official novel and comic publications the previous year. This book is literally a blueprint of how a television show is conceived, written, sold and produced. 64 pages of photographs from the show. Ballantine #73004. Highly recommended. A very handsome vintage copy. ISBN-0345216210. LOC
