Bradbury, Ray
Fahrenheit 451.
Rupert Hart Davis, London, 1954. First British edition of one of the seminal works in the field of science fiction. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Bradbury on the front free endpaper, "MAC! Ray Bradbury 6/12/88." Contemporary inscription, near fine in a fine unfaded dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Illustrated by Joe Mugnaini. A superior example. Fahrenheit 451 remains Bradbury’s most acclaimed work, with more than four million copies in print. "Frightening in its implications Mr. Bradbury’s account of this insane world, which bears many alarming resemblances to our own, is fascinating" (New York Times). It is the basis for the 1966 film directed by Francois Truffaut and starring Oskar Werner, Julie Christie, and Cyril Cusack. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
