June 27, 1947: Ray the Newspaper Boy Publishes First Book, ‘Dark Carnival’

June 27, 1947, L.A. Times

L.A. Times, 1947, Ray Bradbury

Note: This is an encore post from 2005 and originally appeared on the 1947project.

I’ll be putting that little landmark on my tour of the Black Dahlia crime scene, which is about three miles away. Bradbury’s first book got a press run of about 3,000 copies and sells for $1,000 to $4,000 and up.
