London: Hart-Davis, MacGibbon Ltd, 1973. First U.K. Edition. Item #6399
First Impression. Octavo (23.5cm); black cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; dustjacket; [vi],145,pp; illus. Signed by Bradbury and Mugnaini on the title page. Eight tiny spots to lower edge of textblock, else very Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket, unclipped (priced £1.95 net), with a hint of sunning to the red and yellow spine lettering, and some light wear to extremities. An attractive copy of the author's beloved Halloween classic, in which the characters travel through time to visit Halloween's past. Joseph Anthony Mugnaini (1912-1992) was distinguished Italian-American artist and illustrator, and a close friend and collaborator of Bradbury's since the early 1950's. In our experience, trade editions of their collaborative works signed by both of them are quite uncommon.
