    Ray Bradbury: Signed Limited Edition of Dark Carnival. (Springfield: Gauntlet Publications, 2001), copy "V" of a limited edition of 52 signed lettered editions, 512 pages, signed by Bradbury and Clive Barker (who wrote the Afterword) on a special limitation page bound in front, jacket illustration featuring original artwork by Ray Bradbury, end papers reproducing the original artwork for each story as it appeared in Weird Tales, full leather binding with silver titles, 8vo (6" x 8.25"), complete with full-leather beveled traycase with facsimiles of the original U.S. and U.K. covers inset on the front and back. Both book and elaborate traycase are in fine condition (the traycase is missing its drawer handle and there are a couple of light dents at the corners). A wonderful set that expounds on the Arkham House original. Contains four extra stories from Weird Tales not included in the original 1947 Arkham House edition and (included only in the special 52 lettered edition) a 32-page proposal/vignette Bradbury wrote for his agent Don Congdon, which eventually became the basis for SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES (reproduced as Bradbury typed them, complete with his famous doodles, notes to himself, and typos). Comes with an audio version of Bradbury talking about the stories on CD. From the Ventura Collection.

    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.
