DANDELION WINE. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1957. Octavo, cloth. First edition. "A bucolic evocation of Bradbury's youth through rose-colored glasses. Though not strictly fantastic, this poetic blend of nostalgia and ever-so-slightly macabre happenings defines the author's view of the past as a country of the bizarre and the wonderful, and is central to Bradbury's fantasy world." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 4A-44. Pringle, Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels 19. A near fine copy in very good plus dust jacket with light wear and rubbing to corners and spine ends, tiny nick to upper edge of front panel, very slight loss to corners, rubbing to front flap fold, and some soiling to rear panel. (#125539).
