THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, with a New Introduction by the Author

New York: Avon Books, 1997. First Edition. Hardcover. First edition thus, first printing. Signed and dated by Ray Bradbury on the title page. A high spot in modern American literature, this classic collection of 26 interwoven short stories tells the story of repeated attempts by humans, who are accompanied by all their old prejudices, to colonize Mars. Most of the themes that animate the canon of Bradbury's work, including the celebration of innocence, simplicity, and small-town life; the sense of loss as youth changes to adulthood; the anti-technological bias; and the appearance of death disguised beneath masks and alien mimicry, appear collectively in this work. Octavo. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #76210
