    Description

    Ray Bradbury. Dark Carnival. Sauk City, WI; Arkham House, 1947.

    First edition. Octavo. 313 pages, one of 3,112 copies published.

    Black cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine. Minor wear at the spine ends and corners. Some toning to the textblock edges, and noticeable toning at the endpapers. Dust jacket shows a mild abrasion and closed tear at the spine head, light wear at the spine tail and corners, noticeable rubbing and some soiling to the rear panel and rear flap, and light sunning to the spine. A very good copy.

    Dark Carnival was Bradbury's first published book and was extremely well accepted. Years later, Bradbury would reissue Dark Carnival as The October Country, with updated versions of most of the stories.
