THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES.

Garden City: Doubleday & Co., (1973). First U.S. hardback of the complete text and first U.S. with illustrations. Review copy with publisher's review slip laid in. Adds two stories to the 1950 first edition, "The Fire Balloons" and "The Wilderness," first included in a 1963 Time's Inc. paperback version of this title; introductory "Biographical Sketch" and bibliography by William F. Nolan; and Thole's illustrations first published in an Italian edition. Top edge lightly foxed otherwise bright and fine with minor shelf wear to spine ends. This copy in later-printing dust jacket from the first edition price $5.95 on front flap. Possibly a trial jacket but more likely put on by a previous owner who perhaps did not like the geometric design of the intended one. Jacket is near fine with light wear to spine ends and slight toning to spine and rear panel.
