Research History
The OED's earliest citation is from a 1953 reprint of Bernard Wolfe's 1952 "Limbo" (published in the UK as "Limbo '90"). Fred Galvin verified this the Ace edition, but it appears that the Ace paperback was also published in 1953. We would like to verify this in the 1952 Random House edition.
