Fahrenheit 451 Unknown - 1971

by Bradbury, Ray


About this book

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.

First Edition Identification

Fahrenheit 451 was first published as a novel by Ballantine Books in New York in 1953. First edition copies signed by Bradbury sell for $15,000-$18,000. A limited-edition was released by the publisher in late 1953 of 200 signed copies that were bound in asbestos (to make them fireproof).
