to Cart
Price: $200.00

Date Published: 1993

Description: Original oversize Doubleday Books Marketing postcard, 5.25 x 8.5 inches, distributed to promote the 41st anniversary of the release of Ray Bradbury's "The Martian Chronicles." To commemorate the event, Doubleday released a collector's edition volume featuring a new foreword by Bradbury and an additional story, "The Fire Balloons," which was removed from the original book. The front features a fantasy illustration depicting Martians on an alien landscape, in a style reminiscent of Frank Frazetta, signed: "Good Wishes to Howard Moliff from Ray Bradbury, 9/3/93". The back contains the announcement by Doubleday Books of the re-release of "The Martian Chronicles" and more. Apparently, the recipient of this card has affixed a very scarce wine label from Bradbury's vineyard: "1998 Dandelion Wine - Bradbury Vineyards - Bottled on the Estate, Greentown, Illinois," to the postcard, on which Bradbury has signed, gracing both the label and the card with his signature. Fine condition.

The book arrived yesterday morning. I cannot get over the fact that I ordered a book from New York USA late on Friday, it arrives in Newbury UK on Monday morning... Wow! That's what I call an excellent, almost unbelievably good level of service. I will be buying from Argosy Books again (I hope) and using DHL from now on. So thank you very much indeed, I am very pleased with it. - Ken D.
