8vo., original blue cloth gilt to spine; in the original unclipped jacket (7s 6d net) with artwork by Cullen; pp.160; a near-fine example, some light sunning to the spine tips; the jacket fresh and vibrant, perhaps just touched by the sun to the spine, with a few very small nicks the only defect.
First edition.
An early book in the Maurice Gray series by the author, astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore. Moore was perhaps one of the best placed authors to write about Mars and the possibly of inhabitation. He was secretary of the Lunar Section of the British Astronomical Association, published numerous papers on the Moon and planets, was a fellow and Council Member of the British Interplanetary Society, and he even had, in his garden in Sussex, a small observatory with a 12½ inch reflector.
Other books in the series are Mission to Mars (1955), The Voices of Mars (1957) Peril on Mars (1958) and Raiders of Mars (1959).
