Description:
Garden City: Doubleday, 1965. First edition thus. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. First collected edition of these two novels, and the first US hardback edition of either of them. From the time when Ballard was still a secret known mostly to science fiction fans. Both the trade and the book club editions on this book are moderately scarce -- the trade scarcer and more desirable, of course. Clipped dustjacket with several closed tears, the longest about 5cm at the head of the spine; now in a protector to prevent further damage. The book is clean, with slight flaking of the gold on the spine title. A difficult title to find for the Ballard completist.

Description:
Advent made 725 copies of the first edition of this volume, a collection of Robert Bloch's fannish writings. 400 were bound in wraps: this is one of those. Bloch is known primarily as a horror writer, but humor was a part of most of his stories: and this collection, of his writings for fanzines, showcases that humorous side. This volume had a much smaller print run in its first edition than most of Bloch's books: because it came from a specialty press, more copies are preserved in good condition than some others. This copy is tight and clean, overall. The spine is somewhat faded, there are some small internal stains that do not affect the text: overall, a very presentable copy. From the collection of a reader, rather than a collector: and with luck, it will go to another reader.

Description:
First US edition, inscribed by the author ("To Tom -- Anthony Burgess") when Burgess came through UC Berkeley. I am the person he inscribed it to, so I can attest to the validity of the signature! Unclipped jacket has spine fading, and is missing chips at top and bottom of spine. Corners slightly bumped. Still, an uncommon book to find signed. Pictures available on request.
