About this Item: Ballantine Books, New York, 1953. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Paperback original first edition, Ballantine #41. The cover's spine is shifted slightly (about 1/8" or 3mm) onto the front side, which is not uncommon for this book. (See pictures.) That noted, this book is in very good+ condition, marred only by reading creases in the hinges, a 1" shallow crease along the right edge of front cover, some tiny scrape spots on the back cover, and traces of wear on edges and corners. Its binding is sound and square, with no reading crease in the spine. Covers are bright (neither toned nor faded), unmarked, and otherwise unworn. Pages are unmarked and unworn, with unfaded publisher's yellow stain around edges of the text block. As with all Space Age Book purchases, I will ship this book in a moisture proof zip-loc bag, padded in bubble wrap, inside a sturdy box to assure it reaches its proud new owner in the same condition as my description.

About this Item: Ballantine, 1953. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Bradbury's dystopian tale inspired by the Nazi book burning.

Very light rack-rub to extremeties, slight suggestion of a crease when Bradbury opened the book to sign. Nice cover sheen, smells like a new book. Very, very slight aging to page edges. A Near-fine, fine copy of a seventy-year old paperback. With a nice, readable Bradbury autograph. Rare in this condition. Seller Inventory # 862

About this Item: Ballantine Books, New York, 1953. Hardcover; 1st Printing. Condition: NF. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. 1st edition/1st printing, 1953 1st edition. From the collection of famous sci-fi book collector(s) Robert and Diane Yaspan. Signed and Inscribed by the author in red felt-tip pen on a large piece of white paper that is NOT a bookplate (instead a piece of letter-sized stationery trimmed to fit) pasted on the book's front pastedown: 'Mar - 1974 For Robert Yaspan - This copy of the regular trade edition of "451" signed by Ray Bradbury.' Mr. Bradbury was of course differentiati ng between the 1st hardback trade edition owned by Mr. Yaspen vs. the asbestos-covered limited edition issued at the same time. The book is bound in red cloth with yellow printing (Curry binding D, no priority). Straight, clean, tight book with no soiling and no handwriting other than the author's in it, with crisp, clean pages, and with just a mere touch of shelfwear to spine ends/corners and 2 small 'very' slightly darkened cloth areas at the bottom edge of the boards. The price intact ($2.50) dustjacket is clean and crisp with some of the usual fading of the red '451' on the spine (though still quite legible), and with some small, shallow edge chips and tears along its edges, primarily at spine ends, upper back edge and flap fold ends, none affecting any dustjacket lettering or the design (less than it looks like in our photos; there's some flash glare from the DJ protector). The dustjacket is entirely original - no restoration. It is now protected by a clear, removable dustjacket cover. The book is housed in a custom red cloth slipcase dating to the Yaspans in the 1970s that is in excellent condition. Very handsome presentation, and excellent provenance! Made into a very good movie in 1966 by Francois Truffaut, starring Julie Christie and Oskar Werner. This book is what really made Mr. Bradbury into a household name.; Signed by Author.

About this Item: Ballantine Books, 1953. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition, First Printing. Boldly signed Stunning near fine crisp book with vibrant boards with a beautiful unclipped dust jacket. Curry binding D (no priority), the true first edition hardbound issue. Expanded from the novella ?The Fireman?, published in 1951. Filmed in 1966 by Francois Truffaut. Boldly signed by Ray Bradbury in blue felt tip marker on a loosely laid in bookplate. The book is in bright, crisp, near fine condition with clean cloth still retaining its original sheen and bright unfaded yellow titles to front and spine. The book has sharp corners, with one tip bump, and no edgewear. The binding is tight and square, and still snaps shut when opened. The end papers are clean with no bookstore stamps, no stains and no inscriptions. The internal pages are clean, crisp and flat with no marks, no stains, no handling marks, no writing, no bent pages, no stains, and no foxing. Stunning clean, bright book appearing as unread. Boldly signed by Ray Bradbury in blue felt tip marker on a loosely laid in bookplate. Please see detailed images. The original first edition dust jacket has benefited from slight restoration to the spine tips by an expert paper conservator and as such presents in near fine condition. The jacket is bright and still retains the strong vibrant colors with the typical spine fading of the red tones to the title as typically found with this off-white jacket (the numbers ?451? on the spine typically fade out). Otherwise the jacket is in great condition with no rips, no chips, no stains and no foxing. The dust jacket is NOT price clipped and has a stated price of $2.50. Please see the many detailed images. The dust jacket is now protected in a new clear archival cover. Rare and desirable in this condition. A very handsome clean crisp copy of this scarce, important Bradbury title. Presents beautifully on the shelf, in addition to making a wonderful investment. Would make a perfect gift for a Bradbury collector. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our ABE store for other rare SciFi hightlights. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 001423
