The fourth book in the Hitch Hiker's series, the book marks a shift in tone from Adam's previously cynical depiction of modern technology. Adams had purportedly been taken to a computer fair, in which he became enamored with the first model of the Macintosh, and became one of the first people in the UK to own a Mac. "So long and thanks for all the fish" was the dolphin's final message as they departed Earth, just before it was… Read More

Description:
Chatto & Wndus. 8vo., brown publisher's cloth lettered in gilt to spine; upper edge stained brown; complete in the striking original dust jacket designed by Paul Nash (7s. 6d. net); pp. [x], 3-278, [vi, ads.]; end papers very mildly offset; perhaps a little creased along spine, but otherwise a near fine example, the jacket a touch toned in places, with minor chipping to head/foot of spine and edges of folds; the illustrations retaining all of their brightness; a very fresh copy overall. First edition. Thirteen short stories based on his experiences in the war. Aldington was first sent to the front in December 1916, and during his time there wrote a number of essays and poems, though his experiences of gas in the trenches had a profound impact on both his life, and of course his writing. Alongside Images of War and Images of Desire, Roads to Glory was one of his first publications following his return home, and explores themes of fate, rivalry, and haunting regret.

Description:
Hodder & Stoughton. First edition published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1951. A very good copy. The striking Leslie Wood designed dust wrapper has three mended tears, one to the bottom of the front panel and two to the top corners.
