TIMLIN,WILLIAM. THE SHIP THAT SAILED TO MARS. London: Harrap, no date . Large 4to (9 1/2 x 12 1/4"), gilt decorated vellum-backed boards, spine slightly darkened some tip and edge wear, a clean and VG+ copy. An incredible fantasy - science fiction tale. Every page of calligraphic text is individually mounted on heavy gray paper (47 pages of text). There are 48 mounted color plates by Timlin that are really magnificent. Timlin was born in England in 1893 but grew up in South Africa. A most fabulous and desired book.
