A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking 1st / 1st 1988


First edition and first print published by Bantam in 1988. This copy is in very good condition. The wrapper is very complete with very little wear at all. It is not price clipped showing the correct price of £14.95 net. There are a small amount of foxing marks to the inside flaps and quite a few of the same to the reverse of the jacket. There are a smattering of light foxing marks to the text block edge. The boards and pages are very clean. There is no previous owner's ink. Overall a very good copy and rare as a first print.
