ROBINSON, Kim Stanley.
Red Mars; Green Mars; Blue Mars.
London: Harper Collins, 1992-1996. 3 volumes, octavo. Original boards (red, black, and blue), titles gilt to spines. With the illustrated dust jackets. A fine set but for the most trivial creasing to jacket extremities in some places. First editions, first impressions, Red Mars signed and inscribed by the author in the year of publication, "K. S. Robinson, for Peter, best, Stan, Birmingham 1992" on the title page, and the subsequent two volumes each signed by the author on the title pages. This trilogy is already a science-fiction classic, with Red Mars praised by Arthur C. Clarke as "a staggering book. The best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written". Collectively, the trilogy has won two Hugos, two Locus awards, one Nebula and one BSFA award. Broderick & Di Filippo feature the trilogy in their 101 Best Novels (1985-2010), comparing it to a 20th-century War & Peace. (Broderick & Di Filippo, p92). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
