Description

    Ray Bradbury: Fahrenheit 451 First Edition. (New York: Ballantine Books, 1953), first edition, 199 pages, red cloth with yellow lettering on spine and front board, 8vo (5.5" x 8"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Dust jacket and illustrations by Joe Mugnaini. Includes the stories "The Playground" and "And the Rock Cried Out". This novel, written on a rented typewriter in the basement of the Los Angeles Public Library remains one of the most influential and widely read science fiction tales ever published, and taught us all at what temperature paper burns. This copy is in fine condition, with only a couple of very small chips to the edges of the dust jacket, and comes housed in a lovely red banded quarter leather slipcase with gilt lettering and marbled boards. The binding is tight, and the text block is very clean in this beautiful copy of Bradbury's finest work. From the Ventura Collection.
