         The Green Hills of Earth.

      Chicago: Shasta Publishers, 1951. First edition of this collection of short stories. Octavo, original half cloth, pictorial endpapers. Signed by Robert A. Heinlein on the half-title page. Near fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Hubert Rogers. A very sharp example. Robert A. Heinlein was one of the greatest science fiction writer who ever lived. His novels have been translated into every literate language on the globe--over 25 million Heinlein books are in print in this country alone. For five decades, young readers of science fiction discovered Heinlein, then gone on to voraciously devour every Heinlein book they can get their hands on. His now-legendary Stranger in a Strange Land was the first hardcover bestseller by a science fiction writer. From 1975 on, every new Heinlein novel made the New York Times best-seller list and shipped a million copies, including The Number of the Beast, Friday, Job: A Comedy of Justice, The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, and To Sail Beyond the Sunset. In a career spanning half a century, he wrote over forty books, and four of his novels won Hugo Awards, an unequaled record for almost four decades. For the last three generations of readers, Heinlein is science fiction.

         Rain On The Pavements ( J.B. Priestley’s Personal Copy)

      John Lehmann 1951 - The First UK printing published by John Lehmann in 1951. Author’s scarce second book. The Book is in Very Good++ or better condition. The boards are clean with some fading to the edges and a small bump to the fore-edge. There is some mild toning to the text block. Mild pushing to the spine tips. The book is tight, clean and free from inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in VERY GOOD++ or better condition. It bears the correct price of 10s 6d. It has some minor edge-wear with associated creasing and rubbing with a little loss to the ends of the spine. The spine is slightly toned but this does not detract from the pictorial wrap around design. The rear panel has mild toning to the edges but less so than usually encountered. Some small closed tears to the spine and flap folds which have been reinforced with a little archival tape to the verso. The wonderful period wrapper artwork is by the renowned artist JOHN MINTON and looks stunning in the Brodart protective cover. John Minton was commissioned to design the wrappers for both of Camberton’s books. The book also bears the personal library bookplate of J.B.Priestley to the front pastedown. Priestley was a great supporter of Camberton and was instrumental in gaining recognition for Camberton's first novel 'Scamp'. This is a very scarce association title. There has been much interest in Roland Camberton recently resulting in both his novels now being back in print. The author Iain Sinclair has particularly taken an interest and written on Camberton and his books. Collectible. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The Hobbit

      George Allen and Unwin, UK 1951 - 2nd Edition 1951 (5th Imp Overall since 1937) The very rare and important editon of the Hobbit. Only 1850 copies printed. In this new second edition Tolkien reflects on the new concept of the ring and its corrupting abilities, Tolkien made Gollum more aggressive towards Bilbo and distraught at losing the ring. The encounter ends with Gollum's curse, "Thief! Thief, Thief, Baggins! We hates it, we hates it, we hates it forever!" This presages Gollum's portrayal in The Lord of the Rings. This then brought the book inline with the future Lord of the Rings trilogy. Book is near very good and quite bright. Cloth hinges rubbed in places especially at the spine tips. Contents good. The textblock has been at some stage strengthed internally at the gutters which has led to it being slightly offset and lower by 3mm. Book has slight lean. More images can be taken upon request.
