MOORE, Patrick. The Voices of Mars. London: Burke Publishing Co., 1957.
8vo., red cloth boards lettered in black to spine; in the original pictorial dust jacket (7s 6d net) by Cullen; pp. 160; a fine copy with very minimal bruising and discolouration to boards; the jacket bright and vibrant, with some rubbing to the colour at top of spine and folds, and some minor shelfwear to the lower panel. Scarce thus.
Sir Patrick Moore is perhaps best known for his popular astronomy writing, as well a presenting the BBC's Sky at Night for over 50 years. Few know, however, that as well as authoring over seventy books on astronomy, he also wrote science fiction.
The Voices of Mars is the third in a series based on the character Maurice Gray about the colonisation of Mars. It was his fourth book.
Any copies with the jacket are scarce, even more so in such vibrant condition.
