The author’s copy of the first Bantam Export Edition of 1989, removed from Stephen Hawking’s home in Cambridge after his death.
Small octavo bound in blue photographic card wraps, very little rubbing to extremities. With the posthumous deep blue-rimmed bookplate to the verso of the cover that reads: ‘From the home of Stephen W Hawking (1942-2018) Wordsworth Grove, Cambridge November 2020 G. David. Bookseller. Cambridge’.
Hawking’s Brief History was one of the most unexpected bestsellers in publishing history and made a successful physicist into a global celebrity. This first export edition would have been sent to Hawking by his publisher as his personal file copy and remained at his specially designed home at Wordsworth Grove until his death. Hawking trained as a theoretical physicist, collaborated with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems and worked on black hole radiation.
