Fireproof First-Edition of Fahrenheit 451

Auf Ebay ist eine Erstausgabe von Ray Bradburys Fahrenheit 451 aufgetaucht, limitiert auf 200 Stück, gebunden in Asbest und damit feuerfest. Das Teil ist damit praktisch das Gegenteil von Elizabeth Perez’ Ready-For-Burning-451-Buchdesign von vor ein paar Monaten.

You are bidding on what we believe (through a fair amount of research) to be an extremely rare, first edition of FAHRENHEIT 451, the classic science fiction novel by the legendary Ray Bradbury!

Not only do we think this is this a first edition, but this appears to be the EXTREMELY RARE 1953 edition published by Ballantine Publishing Group that was bound in Johns-Manville Quinterra, a chrysolite asbestos material. This edition was limited to 200 copies, each signed and numbered by the author. This is copy #109 of 200.

This edition did NOT originally come with a dust jacket, so that is not a missing item here.
