    Ray Bradbury. The Golden Apples of the Sun. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & company, Inc., 1953.

    First edition. Octavo. 250 pages. Jacket design and drawings by Joe Mugnaini.

    Publisher's dark brown textured cloth with yellow spine titles. In original pictorial dust jacket. Moderate shelf wear, with lightly rubbed corners. Textblock very clean, with minimal toning. Dust jacket also mildly toned, with minor edge wear, one small closed tear at the bottom of the front panel near the spine, light rubbing, and a sun-faded spine.

    "Twenty-two SF and fantasy stories, including 'The Fog Horn,' about a sea monster that loves a fog horn; 'The Pedestrian,' the classic tale of a walker who is lonely because everyone is watching television; 'A Sound of Thunder,' where a time-safari to hunt tyrannosaurus rex alters the present because a hunter accidentally kills a butterfly; and the title story, about a spaceship that flies into the Sun's atmosphere to capture part of its substance. Emphasis on message and characters, rather than science." (Barron: Anatomy of Wonder [1976] 150)

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
