A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes

New York: Bantam Books, 1988. First American edition. A just about Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. Correct first issue with no Table of Contents in the book and with the silver dust jacket (price intact), later switched to a dark blue. The first printing was recalled due to numerous errors with few copies surviving, particularly in this condition. There was also a bookclub edition that was similar to the first state, but for a paragraph on p. 34 and the price and ISBN # on the jacket. Our copy conforms to all correct issue points. Top edge of the boards very faintly sunned and the jacket with a few gentle bends, but no rips or tears.

Stephen Hawking is widely regarded as the most important theoretical physicist since Albert Einstein. In this work he presents a succinct history of the most important theories and developments of our universe and then discusses current research and still unanswered questions. A Brief History of Time presents millennia of research about the universe in a compact form and readable style, although the density of ideas continues to be dividing line between those who have read the book and those who own the book. Nevertheless, A Brief History of Time shows one of the great physicists writing to share the wonders of the universe with any intellectually intrepid reader.
Fine in Fine dust jacket. (Item #6040)
