About This Item

This is a rebound copy of the First Edition of the Martian Chronicles. If you have spent $2000+ for a good First Edition, but you want to actually READ the first edition, then perhaps this copy is for you.
It is a library discard from the Washoe County (Reno) Nevada Library.. It was rebound in 1963 by the Houchen Bindery of Omaha Nebraska. This copy still has the library card in it, and a few stamps and mark. The binding is intact, and all pages present and in good shape.
Corners bumped, some pages lightly stained, I wish that it was perfect of course, but it isn't.


The Martian Chronicles is a 1950 science fiction short story collection by Ray Bradbury that chronicles the colonization of Mars by humans fleeing from a troubled and eventually atomically devastated Earth, and the conflict between aboriginal Martians and the new colonists. The book lies somewhere between a short story collection and an episodic novel, containing stories Bradbury originally published in the late 1940s in science fiction magazines.
