MOORE, Patrick. Peril on Mars. London: Burke Publishing Co., 1958.

8vo., blue cloth lettered in orange to spine; housed in the original dustwrapper (7s 6d net) with artwork by Cullen; pp. 158, [ii]; a near-fine example, lightly sunned and pushed to spine tips, the striking wrapper with some light rubbing to edges and a few small closed tears (one to foot of spine, one to lower panel); still an exceptional example.
First edition.
Best known for his penchant for popularising astronomy through his work as a writer, researcher, radio commentator and television presenter, Sir Patrick Moore also wrote science fiction novels for children. This, the follow-up to his 1957 work The Voices of Mars follows two key characters as they grapple with the struggles which face them on their Martian colony.
Rare with the wrapper so vibrant.
