DescriptionDonald A. Wollheim. The Mike Mars Series Complete in Eight Volumes. All eight volumes published in Garden City by Doubleday between 1961 and 1964. All are first editions except for Mike Mars Flies the X-15. All very good or better in dust jackets.
The Mike Mars Series Complete in Eight Volumes, including: Mike Mars, Astronaut; Mike Mars Flies the X-15; Mike Mars at Cape Canaveral; Mike Mars in Orbit; Mike Mars Flies the Dyna-Soar; Mike Mars, South Pole Spaceman; Mike Mars and the Mystery Satellite; Mike Mars Around the Moon. Garden City: Doubleday, 1961-1964.
All volumes are first editions except for Mike Mars Flies the X-15. Eight octavo volumes. A sharp, tight set of this juvenile series. Rarely found complete and in this condition. All very good or better in dust jackets.
These books offer a wonderful view into early '60s America when we were deep in the space race. Though Mike Mars books do a good job of conveying the training and work routine of astronauts involved in the Gemini program, they were also great propaganda tools for NASA and the Air Force.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
