    There is even a glossary of interplanetary languagesโ€”English, Martian, Venusian and Plutonian.

Research History
Fred Galvin submitted a 1959 cite from William F. Temple's "The Undiscovered Country", in a 1959 US edition of Nebula Science Fiction magazine, which Mike Christie verified the 1958 UK edition.
The 1952 quot. is in reference to a British fan publication called "The Space Patrol Official Handbook"; we would like to check this for an earlier example.

We would like to see other examples of any date.
