First Editions

Author of hundreds of stories and dozens of books and essays, Ray Bradbury is among the most prolific of popular 20th century American writers. While many of his stories first appeared in magazines, Bradbury regularly collected these stories into book length anthologies such as Dark Carnival, The Illustrated Man, and The Golden Apples of the Sun, and some of the stories served as kernels for longer works, such as The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, and Dandelion Wine. The Anne Farr Hardin Collection contains first editions of all of Bradbury’s works as well as many later and alternate editions.
