Item Description: Sauk City, WI: Arkham House, 1947. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition. Inscribed by Bradbury on the front free endpaper: "For Stu Oderman - / This rare first / edition of 'Dark / Carnival' signed / on the first day / of January, 1982! / With friendship! / From / Ray Bradbury". Publisher's black cloth, lettered in yellow. About near fine, with some rubbing to lettering on the spine, light offsetting to the endpapers, pages lightly toned. Overall, a pleasing copy of Bradbury's first book, inscribed by the author. Bradbury inscribed this copy of Dark Carnival to Stuart Oderman, a pianist best known for his musical accompaniments for silent films. Although the origin of their friendship is unclear, Bradbury and Oderman were long-time friends and maintained a steady written correspondence from the early 1960s through Bradbury's death in 2012. In a 2008 interview with The Star Ledger, Oderman cited Bradbury as one of his favorite authors. A collection of his macabre short stories, Dark Carnival is Ray Bradbury's first published book and includes "The Small Assassin," "Jack-in-the-Box," "The Scythe," "Uncle Einar," "The Traveler," and "The Jar," among others. Additionally it includes "The Homecoming," which Truman Capote famously discovered in a pile of submissions while working as an editor for Mademoiselle. Interestingly, Bradbury originally intended to title Dark Carnival "The Child's Garden of Terrors," which emphasized the nightmarish qualities of the collected fiction. Notably, this collection's carnival and childhood themes are personally significant to Bradbury as they both played a large role in his becoming a writer. According to his official biographer, Sam Weller, Bradbury began writing it after visiting a travelling circus that came to his town, where he met the eccentric Mr. Electrico, who cryptically instructed the young Bradbury to "live forever!" Bradbury claimed that he began writing voraciously shortly after this significant experience at the travelling circus. Inscribed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # RB006
