First Printing. A handsome and fine copy in an unclipped ($3.50) and very good dustjacket. This copy is signed by the author on the front free endpaper--signed without any inscription. From the author of "The Exorcist"--this is one of his early works--a story about a Jewish U2 pilot who crash lands in Arabic territory. A hilarious cold war adventure of international diplomacy--and a far cry from the day when Blatty would write the "Exorcist" a terrifying novel that gripped the entire USA population when it was released as a movie and made pea soup a scary prop. A very collectable copy. Only mild age toning to the page edges and one little blip on the front board--hardly noticeable. The dustjacket is complete and unchipped--but it is age toned on the spine where the orange paper has lightened slightly. Protected by a BrodArt covering.

Green Shadows, White Whale: A Novel, Bradbury, Ray
18 Bradbury, Ray Green Shadows, White Whale: A Novel
Westminster, Maryland Knopf 1992 0394578783 / 9780394578781 First Printing Hardcover Fine Fine 
First Printing. A handsome and fine copy in a fine unclipped dustjacket. This copy is signed by Bradbury on the front free endpaper, "Ed!!--Ray Bradbury--6/01/92". This is an unread copy--still has the crispness of an unopened book--perhaps signed and put away. From the well known author of "The Martian Chronicles". Bradbury went to Ireland in 1953 to write the screenplay to "Moby Dick" for John Huston--and while there collected enough artifacts and acquired enough legends to muster up this book--whose chapters were more or less divided up and published previously in many forms--mostly magazine articles--prior to this release in 1992. A fun read and a must have for the Bradbury collector. Doubt you will find a nicer copy that this.
