    Description

    Ray Bradbury "Fahrenheit 451" special edition inscribed by Bradbury to Stan Freberg. (1991) Ray Bradbury was one of Stan Freberg's best friends throughout his life. He was the best man at Freberg's wedding to Hunter in 2001 and they shared many unique experiences. Bradbury and Freberg met at a party in Beverly Hills at director Stanley Kramer's house. Bradbury asked Freberg for a ride home because he did not drive. Freberg had a Cadillac at the time and when they arrived at Bradbury's home, Bradbury was unable to open the passenger door because the automatic door locks were on. Freberg told Bradbury to press the "normal button" and Bradbury said, "Who the hell is General Motors to say what is normal"? Two great friends sharing a laugh. Two great friends entertaining each other. This is a 1991 Easton Press edition of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The legendary author has inscribed the book on the interior title page, "October 28th, 1992, Stan! Thanks, much thanks for your grand and funny help last night! Love! Ray Bradbury", opposite a color plate illustration by Joseph Mugnaini, one of Bradbury's favorite artists. The 5.5 x 8.5 in volume is bound in maroon leather and board with gold gilt lettering on cover and spine. Comes with an LOA from Stan Freberg. With integral white satin bookmark. In vintage fine condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
