Item description

FAHRENHEIT 451 Ray Bradbury London, England: Science Fiction Book Club, 1955. Hardback book in dust jacket. 8vo., 157 pages. Second Edition, Second Issue (see the last photo I posted with the listing; or, third hardback edition). The book this author will be remembered for. Iโ€™m not seeing any copies offered anywhere for sale of this important edition that is signed by the author. You also get a letter of assurance regarding the authenticity of the signature. Our bookstore was one of two favorites he loved to sign books at. The book offered here is the third hardback edition (not including the very expensive 1953 โ€œasbestos material with exceptional resistance to pyrolysisโ€ of which 200 were signed of the 4500 copy first printing) of this universally famous dystopian novel. [The first U.S. hardback edition was released at the same time with the Ballantine No. 41 paperbound edition, not after Ballantine No. 41, which was also printed from the same plates that were used to print the first hardback edition] in the United States by Ballantine Books in 1953, the second hardback edition was published in 1954 in London, England by Rupert Hart-Davis, and then the copy offered here printed in London, England in 1955 by the Science Fiction Book Club. This edition is seen but hardly ever seen signed. It really is an affordable alternative to the previous hardback editions. The signature in a book like this is the key issue relative to collectibility and value (as well as condition of the book and dust jacket.) Fine copy in original green boards with spine stamped in raspberry coloured metallic ink. The dust jacket is very good plus with a bit of light wear to the front corners of the front and rear jacket panels, some light scratches to the front cover and two light scratches to the spine. All very minor. Interior is tightly bound and with a bit of age toning. Frontis illustration by Joe Mugnaini. An attractive copy. I will enclose the dust jacket in removable Mylar upon sale. I presented this copy to Ray Bradbury at his home in Los Angeles for his bold signature on the title page well over a decade ago. I will write a letter of assurance to this effect and also print a photo of the signature and book with this letter. This is the book that Ray Bradbury will be remembered for. It has been in print since 1953 and is still a best selling novel. Any authentically signed copy of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury will retain its value. This book will be sent well-boxed, and insured. Note: No returns or refunds on sales to out of the USA, sorry. Insurance is the issue, but I will provide secure packing and tracking within the USA. Thank you, Phantom Bookshop. Inquire please. John Anthony Miller Phantom Bookshop Ventura, CA
