Original typescript short story bibliography, signed, circa 1948

N.p. N.p., Circa 1948. Vintage typescript bibliography of short story publications through the end of 1948, compiled by author Ray Bradbury and including a contemporary holograph note by Bradbury, in an early hand, signed on the first leaf: "Mike: Here it is - sorry for the delay - but I had to verify some dates - there are a few blanks you can fill in - Ray."

The bibliography is organized by publication, and then chronologically, with typed comments regarding co-writers, alternate titles, and pseudonyms. We are unable to ascertain the identity of "Mike," however, in 1949 Bradbury took a trip to New York to meet with several publishers and editors about his work, which ultimately lead to a contract for "The Martian Chronicles," his first novel, and it seems possible this may have been in preparation for those meetings.

Three leaves, rectos only, bound with a paperclip. Very Good plus, with expected toning and edgewear.
