    The October Country is in publisher's red cloth with black stamping. Currey's second state binding with the Ballantine logo printed upside down in the spine. Cloth is moderately rubbed on the spine ends and corners. There is a previous owner's label attached to the front free endpaper. Dust jacket shows some even soiling and has chipping on the joints and corners. A very good copy of this early Bradbury title.


    Long After Midnight is in publisher's tan boards with brown cloth spine and gold stamping. Dust jacket shows only slight edge wear with a few tiny tears on the top spine edge. A near fine copy.


    Two short story collections by one the world's greatest fantasists.
