London, Rupert Hart-Davis, 1951. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A stunning copy, from the collection of noted bibliophile Stanley Simon and inscribed to him by the author. Fine condition. This book's very difficult to find in anything close to fine condition, in fact, we've turned down a number of copies over the past few years on this basis. So we're very pleased to be able to offer such a nice copy, particularly one inscribed. Minor scuffing to forecorners and a little toning to the boards, one short 3mm closed tear to jacket. A superior copy. Inscribed 'For / Stanley / Simon / Ray / Bradbury / Oct / 10 / 1984'. The Silver Locusts was published earlier in the US as The Martian Chronicles with slightly different content. A highlight of science fiction collecting. Cover art by Roy Sanford [7140, Hyraxia Books].
