About This Item

Colorado Springs, CO: Gauntlet Press, 2007. First Edition . Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Hardcover, F/F dj, as new unread copy. Slipcased, signed, numbered, and limited to 750 copies; still sealed in publishers shrinkwrap. Housed in a handsome wooden slipcase; includes the limited edition chapbook, The Dragon Who Ate His Tail. Ray Bradbury didn't sit down one day and decide to write his classic novel Fahrenheit 451. As with Something Wicked This Way Comes Bradbury's tale of censorship had its roots years earlier in at least 9 short stories or novellas. While published in 1953 the genesis of Fahrenheit 451 can be traced back to 1944. Over the next several years Bradbury tinkered with the idea in a number of short stories a few that have been collected a number of times, some that appeared just once and others that have remained unpublished . . . Until now. MATCH TO FLAME: The Fictional Paths to Fahrenheit 451 traces the roots of Fahrenheit 451 in Bradbury's earlier fiction. Edited by Donn Albright, the book is a must for those who have marveled at Fahrenheit 451. The centerpiece of the book, is of course, "The Fireman" a novella published in Galaxy Magazine in 1951. Signed by Bradbury, this is bound to become a classic edition for scholars looking into the history of Fahrenheit 451, collectors and readers of great fiction, and those interested in obscure and unpublished Bradbury material that will not see publication anywhere else.
