SF Collection Donated to SDSU

Edward E. Marsh, who spent 30 years amassing a vast SF and fantasy collection, donated much of the collection to San Diego State University’s Love Library. Valued at over $2.25 million, the collection includes ephemera such as press clippings, notes, busts of authors, movie props, original book cover art, literary contracts, authors’ yearbooks, and  autographs, and features works by Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Arthur C. Clarke, L. Sprague de Camp, Robert A. Heinlein,  Frank Herbert, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and others. Most of the books are signed first editions. (The collection also includes non-genre material by William S. Burroughs, Winston Churchill, Ernest Hemingway, and more.)

The donation will be housed in the “Edward Marsh Golden Age of Science Fiction Room,” which will be created specifically for this collection.

For more, see the SDSU website.
