Description

    Ray Bradbury. The Martian Chronicles - Inscribed. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1950.

    First edition. Octavo. 222 pages. Inscribed by Bradbury on the front free endpaper.

    Light green cloth. Some fading to spine of both book and dust jacket. An otherwise very good copy in crisp jacket. In custom slipcase.

    A clean and attractive copy of Bradbury's second book. Bradbury loosely connected these science fiction stories set on Mars into a coherent whole so that the publisher could better market the book as a novel. This "episodic first novel about mankind's colonization of Mars [...] helped to bring science fiction to the attention of the literary mainstream." (Bloom, Science Fiction Writers of the Golden Age p. 78) From the Frank Collection.

    Barron 4-102. Currey.

    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.
