About This Item

An extraordinary signed copy. This First Edition, First State copy of this now-iconic title would certainly qualify as very near Fine but for extensive foxing to top edge and foredge leaves, and a slight separation at spine crown. The original dust jacket is absolutely Fine.
What makes this unique copy so extraordinarily collectible is that on the title page it is boldly (and highly legibly) signed by STEVEN SPIELBERG, JEFF GOLDBLUM, LAURA DERN and the late, great STAN WINSTON. A Knopf publishers card SIGNED BY MICHAEL CRICHTON is laid in.

Synopsis

Jurassic Park is a 1990 science fiction novel written by Michael Crichton. Often considered a cautionary tale on unconsidered biological tinkering in the same spirit as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, it uses the mathematical concept of chaos theory and its philosophical implications to explain the collapse of an amusement park showcasing certain genetically recreated species.
