DescriptionRay Bradbury. Switch on the Night. Illustrations by Madeleine Gekiere. [New York]: Pantheon Books, .
First edition, later printing. Octavo. Unpaginated. Profusely illustrated throughout the text.
Publisher's washable white cloth fully illustrated in black, yellow and olive green with yellow and white text on the front cover. Spine lettered in yellow. Red endpapers. Covers slightly rubbed, minor bumping to corners and spine. Altogether a tight and very good copy.
Although not the first printing, this is a relatively early printing due to the presence of Bradbury's dedication to his daughters, an element lacking in later printings. Switch on the Night is Bradbury's (August 22, 1920) first work of children's literature.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
