Ballantine 23582 The Chessmen Of Mars GOOD
The Chessmen Of Mars
By Edgar Rice Burroughs
Cover by Gino d'Achille
Tara, Princess of Helium, beautiful, fiery-tempered, impetuous, found that following a whim could be dangerous.
Lost in her flier in the midst of a Martian tempest, she was at the mercy of the mad wind, and could only pray to be set down unharmed. Her hope of survival in the ancient, mysterious region of Barsoom would have been small indeed had she known of the strange inhuman customs of its inhabitants.
A chessboard manned by humans who must contest each square to the death. Heads without bodies, and bodies without heads. And meet Gahan of Gathol, a hero worthy of the immortal warlord's daughter.
Third Ballantine printing, 1973. Cover is dull from handling, with heeavy edge wear top and bottom, a dogear at the top, and another, fainter crease right of center. Spine is wrinkly. There's a hard-to-see liquid stain; it looks like the lower inner corner of the book was dipped into a cup of coffee. Page are browned. Binding is tight and square.
