antimatter (Historical Dictionary of Science Fiction 1953)

"Antimatter" occurs in the 1948 book Cosmic rays and nuclear physics by the physicist Lajos Jánossy:

The other type of matter might be called the "anti matter." In collision the two types of matter would annihilate each other and give rise to intense radiation.
