The Sands of Mars (Inscribed First Edition)

New York: Gnome Press, 1952. First U.S. Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine / Fine. Item #012207

8vo., 216pp. Beautiful First American Edition with no other printings listed as called for. Bound in red cloth with titles black on spine. Just about Fine; square, tight and clean throughout with just a touch of wear to the spine ends and tips but quite minor. Some mild off-setting to gutters. Equally attractive unclipped dust-jacket, ($2.75) has trivial wear at the heel but is fresh and bright with no chipping, creases or tears. Signed and inscribed to noted Oklohoma Sci-Fi collector Hardin Ramey on the front end-paper and with his small, unobtrusive ownership stamp on the half-title. A simply gorgeous collectable copy of one of Clarke's earliest novels and rarely found signed.

Price: $1,500.00
