The Most Elaborate Bradbury Limited Edition

The Halloween Tree [Signed, Lettered, Metal Slipcase]

Notes: Includes Bradbury's 1967 screenplay, a draft of the novel from 1971, the final version with a tally of changes made from the galley proofs, a teleplay, and companion materials. Certainly the definitive version. This lettered version includes content not found in the regular version, including several previously unpublished Halloween poems and a story, "The Elevator."

Published in an edition of 750 hardcover copies and this version, one of 52 lettered copies, signed by Bradbury with a red thumbprint. The book is housed in an elaborate metal traycase with a pop-up tree with dangling pumpkin decorations.

495 pages. 11-1/4 by 9 inches. Oblong format.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Signed by Bradbury on the title page. The metal traycase is near fine but this copy has the same problem as all of those I've had before or seen: The hinges for the lid were milled incorrectly and have caused some warping to the metal at the corners.

This copy has color laserprints of two Mugnaini illustrations from the book, both signed by Bradbury. This copy does not have the chapbook Fragments, which was given out on request to people who ordered The Halloween Tree from Gauntlet, but it is not technically part of this publication.

Publication: Colorado Springs, CO: Gauntlet Press, 2005.
