Leviathan '99: A Radio Drama

Scarce Bradbury Radio Play, Signed

Leviathan '99: A Radio Drama

Notes: The script for a radio adaptation of Bradbury's Moby Dick-in-space narrative, a work he returned to again and again, first as this radio play (written in 1966 and produced by the BBC in 1968), then as a stage play, an opera, an unproduced screenplay, and finally as a novella.

[1], 46, [1] leaves, photocopied on one side only. 8-1/2 by 11 inches. Brad-bound in yellow printed wrappers. The final text page has the publisher's information, which places Alert Duplicating at 8014 West Third Street with a ten-digit phone number (the name of the company, address, and phone number help date this to the late 1960s, based on comparisons with other Bradbury plays printed by Alert).

Edition + Condition: First or early printing. Near fine. Signed by Bradbury on the front cover. With a 1979 handwritten letter from Bradbury bibliographer and archivist Donn Albright to the Bradbury collector and publisher Herb Yellin enclosing the script, "Here's something I think you must not have."

Publication: Los Angeles: Alert Duplicating Service, [n.d. but 1968?].
