London, Rupert Hart-Davis, 1951. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A good copy. Signed by the author without inscription to the title page. The Silver Locusts was published earlier in the US as The Martian Chronicles with slightly different content. Some rubbing and wear to the spine tips and corners - which have been reinforced to the inside with tape. Price-clipped. A little foxed internally. Small seller's sticker to front pastedown. Nice enough overall. Cover art by Roy Sanford [9232, Hyraxia Books].
