DescriptionRay Bradbury. The Illustrated Man. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1951.
First edition. Octavo. 252 pages. Jacket design by Sydney Butchkes.
Publisher's tan cloth with black titles. In original pictorial dust jacket. Soiled boards, dust-soiling to the top edge, and mild discoloration at the endpapers. The dust jacket has light edge wear, minor rubbing on the rear panel, slightly rubbed corners, one tiny closed tear to the top of the rear panel, and a noticeably sunned spine. All in all, this is a near fine copy of a classic Bradbury collection.
"Eighteen SF and fantasy stories from 1947 to 1951 plus prologue and epilogue. Structured by the device of a man's body tattooed with pictures, each of which comes alive with a story...Some social criticism, but emphasis on sentimentality in highly crafted, emotion-generating stories." (Barron: Anatomy of Wonder  150)

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
