About This Item

Los Angeles: Graham, 2005. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. The deluxe limited issue of this 50th anniversary illustrated edition of Brabury's great dystopian novel. The book includes full-page color illustrations by the illustrator Ralph Steadman, who is widely known for his work with Hunter S. Thompson.

There were 451 copies of this edition, with a special introduction by Bradbury written just for this book. This is one of 52 lettered copies presented in a lovely folding clamshell box for the book and an original signed lithograph, "The Hound", by Ralph Steadman. This is a wonderful pairing of one of the great novels of the second half of the 20th century with one of the best illustrators of adult books of the same era. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket and a near fine clamshell box. This copy is SS of 52, signed by Bradbury and Steadman, with a fine example of the Steadman lithograph in a fine envelope, as issued.


Fahrenheit 451 (Ballantine Books, 1953) by Ray Bradbury is a dystopian novel that presents a future American society in which the masses are hedonistic and critical thought through reading is outlawed. Written in the early years of the Cold War, the novel is a critique of what Bradbury saw as issues in American society of the era. Bradbury combined two of his early short stories, "The Pedestrian" and  "Bright Phoenix," into The Fireman, a novella published in the February 1951 issue of Galaxy Science Fiction. Bradbury's publisher at Ballantine Books then suggested that he expand the work to make into a novel—Fahrenheit 451.
