DescriptionRay Bradbury: The Silver Locusts. (London: Rupert Hart-Davis, 1951), first edition, 232 pages, light gray cloth with silver lettering on spine, 8vo (5" x 8.25"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket illustration by Roy Sanford. This British edition of Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles was published a year after Bradbury's groundbreaking collection was published in the United States. The story "Usher II" was taken out of this release and replaced with "The Fire Balloons." This copy is in fine condition, with light foxing to the text edges, a few pages at the front and back, and the dust jacket as the only flaw. The binding is tight. An essential volume for the Bradbury completist. From the Ventura Collection.

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.
