The Halloween Tree
Gauntlet Press, 2005. Limited Lettered Edition. Full Leather. Fine/Near Fine+. A scarce beautiful Limited Lettered First Gauntlet Edition of Ray Bradbury's classic work, "The Halloween Tree," signed by Bradbury on the limitation page and lettered "EE" of only 52 Limited Edition Lettered copies created by Bradbury and Gauntlet Press. The set includes the beautiful metal laser-engraved lidded case (measuring 12 x 14") with the pop-up decorated metal Halloween Tree from the cover art of the book that lifts up from the face of the metal case complete with its dangling golden Halloween goblins. The lid of the case is lined with plexiglass and a golden metal goblin insignia fastened to the inside edge of the case is engraved with the letter of this limited edition, "EE." Also includes two beautiful 8 1/2 x 11" prints from the book's cover art each signed by Ray Bradbury in matching colored felt pen, and each is suitable for framing. Also includes the 9-page chapbook "Fragments," which contains fragments of 8 unfinished Bradbury short stories with cover art by Ray Bradbury. All of the pieces of this beautiful set are in nice condition but for small rubs on the plexiglass liner, a very small nick on the top spine of the dustjacket, all are very minor. Also the inside liner of the metal case seems slightly out of alignment in the upper left corner but the overall case sits square. . . .And given the contents? There is nothing comparable in the Bradbury world to this set -- The book is bound in beautiful black leather, without flaw, with 494 pages that include a typeset version of Bradbury's preferred text, the original manuscript (complete with handwritten corrections) Bradbury sent to Knopf publishing, a screenplay Bradbury wrote before he wrote the novel (in manuscript form) and the typeset version of his Hanna-Barbera screenplay. The front and back of the dustjacket are decorated with reproductions of oil paintings of Halloween trees done by Ray Bradbury. A handsome set, the first Gauntlet metal lidded box and tree, and one of its best productions, to say nothing of being the most elaborate production the Ray Bradbury -Gauntlet Press partnership could create to celebrate this classic book.
