Notes

First edition, signed limited issue, number 77 of 200 copies signed by the author. The limited issue is specially bound in Johns-Manville Quinterra, a chrysolite asbestos material that is theoretically fire resistant, in honour of the eponymous temperature at which paper spontaneously combusts. Fahrenheit 451 has won multiple awards: the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature and the Commonwealth Club of California Gold Medal (1954), the Prometheus "Hall of Fame" Award (1984), and "Retro" Hugo Award, one of only four Best Novel Retro Hugos ever given (2004). The novel has been adapted several times for film, radio, and stage.
