SIGNED/INSCRIBED Titles by the Legendary Author/Astronomer/Scientist/Icon are Scarce and Becoming Exceedingly Hard to Find!! A Carl Sagan Classic and Basis for the Popular Film!! Hardcover with its original dust jacket, NOT price-clipped! Published by Simon And Schuster, 1985. Boldly SIGNED and Warmly INSCRIBED by the great Carl Sagan!
The full inscription reads, For Francis? , With all good wishes Carl Sagan. We are a bit uncertain as to the name this copy is inscribed to.I believe the name is most likely "Francis" but others have suggested alternative names. Despite our best efforts and extensive research, we cannot say for absolute certain who the book is inscribed to so I would kindly encourage you to carefully examine the inscription and the name and arrive at your own conclusion. Once again, I believe the book is inscribed to someone named "Francis" but I can absolutely understand why others have a different interpretation. A First American Edition/Seventh Printing with the number line ending with "7".
Please remember this is NOT a First Edition/First Printing! Some would classify this copy as a First Edition Thus, a First Edition/Later Printing, a First Edition/Early Printing and so on. We prefer to be as specific as possible when classifying/describing our books which is why we refer to this copy as a First Edition/Seventh Printing. Once again, this is NOT a First Edition/First Printing. This rare treasure has some VERY clearly visible wear/age, but is still in lovely, Highly Collectible condition!
