DANDELION WINE. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1957. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Signed by Bradbury. "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.
