Match to Flame: The Fictional Path to Fahrenheit 451 and The Dragon Who Ate His Tail
(Colorado Springs), Gauntlet, (2006). A collection of the fictions that Bradbury wrote in the nine years prior to his classic novel of 1953, all of which contained some seeds or ideas that later composed the famous novel. Some of these stories have been reprinted many times, some only published once, and others were unpublished prior to this volume. A "Publisher's Copy" (PC) of the limited edition (750 copies) of Match to Flame, signed by Bradbury. Slight corner taps, else fine in a fine dust jacket. Issued together with The Dragon Who Ate His Tail, which here has the ownership stamp of another author inside the front cover and slight corner taps; very near fine in wrappers. [#032262] $500
