1 Asimov, Isaac Mars, the Red Planet
New York, New York, U.S.A.: Lothrop Lee & Shepard 1977 0688518125 / 9780688518127 1st Edition Hardcover Good Very Good 
Library Edition, used at the library and withdrawn. Dust Jacket is protected by plastic, shows minor shelf wear. Book has library markings and pockets, marked out, marked withdrawn. Someone has decided to correct and improve Mr. Asimov's text in ink on page 35. Someone else has underlined two words on page 18 and starred a Table on page 19. Otherwise, pages are clean and binding secure. A good science book for the young Astronomer, written by one of our finest scientists of the 20th century. Nice article on the author on the back of the Dust Jacket.

Modern Essays, Avent, John M. Editor

Eight B&W glossy portraits of the essayists. Includes thoughts from William James, E.V. Lucas, Henry Seidel Canby, G.K. Chesterton, Agnes Repplier, Henry van Dyke, A.C. Benson, Walter Prichard Eaton, Richard La Gallienne, Samuel M Crothers, Joseph Conrad, Woodrow Wilson and Hendrik van Loon. Title page missing. (I can include a copy from another book just for interest's sake if requested). Many markings on the CONTENTS page. Ink on page 3. Pencil on page 21. Underlining in "MONEY". Residue from tape repair on page 90 that must have occurred previous to the library binding. Aside from the crucial identifying page being missing, all the essays, the photos, and the QUESTIONS AND DISCUSSION section in the back of the book are all clean and intact. Not bad for a 100-year-old book. Our listing number 48029.
