    Description

    1950 New York Science Fiction Convention Program. Unpaginated, 4.75 x 6.5 inches, July 1, 1950, staple bound in illustrated wrappers. Neat item from the golden age of science fiction fandom. This brief pamphlet is loaded with advertisements for publishers, their books, other conventions, and more. An ad toward the front of the book reads "Just Published...The book of the Ray Bradbury stories which are the epic of men on Mars...The Martian Chronicles." The program also includes an introduction by Lester del Rey, a Program of Events for the weekend, and a short piece by Judith Merril titled "Science Fiction---Something Special." A fascinating piece of science fiction ephemera in very fine condition. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
