About this Item: Ballantine Books, 1953. FIRST EDITION. THE COMPLETE ASBESTOS 'SF' COLLECTION *** HOT STUFF *** FAHRENHEIT 451, Ballantine Books, 1953, first edition, light wear to the spine edges, some soiling to the spine and boards as usual, else a tight vg copy without dustwrapper as issued. Also contains THE PLAYGROUND & AND THE ROCK CRIED OUT. 1/200 copies SIGNED by the author and specially bound in Johns-Manville Quinterra, an asbestos material with exceptional resistance to pyrolysis. Certainly a high spot of modern literature which has seen few auction records from the major houses in the last 10 years. (A most interesting provenance to this copy. After my suggesting to the publisher of the first edition of FIRESTARTER by Stephen King (see below) that producing a special asbestos edition of this title could be a lot of fun, he, as many already know, did so. He obtained this copy now offered for sale by trading one of these 26 such bound copies of FIRESTARTER to Gerry de la Ree for one of de la Ree's copies of the asbestos bound Bradbury title. This is that very copy!) Retrospective HUGO winning novel for 1954. Along with: FIRESTARTER, Phantasia Press, 1980, first edition, a faint discoloration about the size of a quarter to a blank section of the signature page (not interfering in any manner with any writing or printed text) with some off-setting of same on to a small area of the adjoining page (the last page of text), else fine without dustwrapper or slip-case as issued. 1/26 lettered copies bound in asbestos cloth, this one being letter B and thus one of the publishers own copies !!! For the pair and the right to ownership of a complete science fiction asbestos collection (of which there cannot ever be more than 26 sets with probably less than a half-dozen extant now---).
