First American edition of Hawking’s groundbreaking work. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated by Ron Miller. Boldly signed by Carl Sagan on the title page, who wrote the introduction. Sagan tells the following story: Sagan was in London for a scientific conference in 1974, and between sessions he wandered into a different room, where a larger meeting was taking place. “I realized that I was watching an ancient ceremony: the investiture of new fellows into the Royal Society, one of the most ancient scholarly organizations on the planet. In the front row, a young man in a wheelchair was, very slowly, signing his name in a book that bore on its earliest pages the signature of Isaac Newton… Stephen Hawking was a legend even then.” In his introduction, Sagan goes on to add that Hawking is the “worthy successor” to Newton and Paul Dirac, both former Lucasian Professors of Mathematics. Near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light rubbing. Rare and desirable signed.
