FAHRENHEIT 451 SIGNED FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. Ballantine Books, New York, 1953. First Edition, First Printing: : The true first printing of this title was first published in fragile softcover and then in the same year, was published in hardcover format. This copy is the true first printing, boldly signed in black felt tip by Ray Bradbury on a laid in adhesive bookplate.
Expanded from the novella "The Fireman", published in 1951. Filmed in 1966 by Francois Truffaut. The book is in vibrant color softwraps, lightly rubbed along the spine and outer edges, and with a few soft creases. Otherwise internally the binding is quite tight and the book appears as unread. Boldly signed in black felt tip by Ray Bradbury on a laid in adhesive bookplate.
Would make a perfect gift for a Bradbury collector. This book is part of a collection.
