Published by Random House, 1977.Boldly SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the legendary Author/Scientist/Icon! The full inscription appears to read. Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to ascertain the identity of the individual to whom the book is inscribed to. We believe the book is inscribed to someone named "Francis" but please know that is simply our best guess? First American Edition/Second Printing with the number line ending in "2" and a letter "B" positioned in the middle of the number line.
Please remember this is NOT the First Edition/First Printing of this title! A TRUE First/First will have a number line ending in "2" and "First Edition" will be clearly stated. 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/Second Printing. Once again, this is NOT a First Edition/First Printing.

The binding is tight and the pages are still surprisingly crisp and clean! Some general/shelf/age wear along with creases/wear to the spine/cloth boards, creases/scuffing/wear to some of the pages and wear to the edge/fore pages, NOT affecting the text!
Please note the creases/wear to the spine/cloth boards! The wear has resulted in a somewhat concave shape/indentation to the spine/cloth.
