Notes: The expanded signed, deluxe edition of this color survey of Bradbury's publications, beginning with the earliest fanzines. Includes photographs of first editions, paperback reprints, foreign editions, trial artwork, as well as of the plays and movies based on Bradbury's work.
This version has 32 extra black-and-white pages at the front, mostly devoted to a storyboard presentation of Bradbury's The Ghosts of Forever: A Film Fantasy, illustrated by Joseph A. Mugnaini. The book is bound in full red leatherette stamped with a snakeskin pattern. It was published two years after the trade issue. The edition size is usually given as 26 copies, although your cataloguer does not know the source of that number as it doesn't appear to be printed in the book.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a very near fine clamshell box (minor bump to outer upper corners). This is copy Y, signed by Weist and Bradbury on a limitation page. While the binding only imitates snakeskin, the overall look is quite effective.
