Description:
SIGNED by Stephen Hawking, Not his thumbprint! Includes Certificate of Authenticity! One of the scarcest, most difficult to obtain signatures, Stephen Hawking signs a science fiction novel from 1966, before Hawking was no longer able to write his name due to ALS. Hawking signs this novel, "October the First is Too Late," on the blank page opposite the title page in his stilted, still legible handwriting: "Stephen Hawking" in blue ballpoint. On the back blank page, some "doodles" evidence the same stilted quality, indicating they may have been penned by Hawking as well. Signature was acquired by Professor Antal Bejczy, a NASA scientist who developed the Mars Rover Sojourner and who worked with Hawking at CalTech in the 1970s. Novel is a 1966 paperback printing by author Fred Hoyle who, apart from his writing pursuits, was principally a theoretical astronomer. Like Hawking, he worked at the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge and also at CalTech where, during a sabbatical, he developed a theory of… Read more

Description:
SIGNED First Edition of Hazlitt's rarest title. Integrating his two [timary interests, literary criticism and economics, Hazlitt reflects that struggle in the form of a trialogue. His characters debate the question of literary value, and pushes forward the proposition that the value of literature is discerned and revealed through the operation of the "social mind. Further, Hazlitt offers an extra bonus here, a postscript on the rise of Marxism in literary criticism. This highly significant essay was likely the first prominent attack on Marxist literary deconstructionism published! Lacks the exceedingly rare dust jacket. Small stain on front flyleaf, not affecting Hazlitt's inscription or signature. No other writings or markings of any kind. Book #P2125. $1595. We specialize in rare Ayn Rand, history, and science.

Description:
SIGNED First Edition Presentation copy of Hughes' Simple Takes a Wife, the breakthrough second title in Hughes' acclaimed "Simple" series, "The most famous character in black fiction." Inscribed by Langston Hughes to a close friend and longtime Cleveland NAACP member, Irene Liggins. Ralph Ellison praised Simple Takes a Wife as "a vivid picture of Negro life and its richness." and the New York Times, upon publication declared it "a superior achievement to the first of the series, Simple Speaks His Mind" (1950). "The new book is more of a piece, the material is more carefully and competently arranged, more unexpectedly presented; it is more brilliant, more skillfully written, funnier, and perhaps just a shade more tragic than its predecessor… This is true humor with a bite to it, spoken in the authentic language of 135th Street" (NYT). Hughes' 1957 Broadway play, Simply Heavenly, was based largely on Simple Takes a Wife. With "First Printing" on copyright page; as issued without dust jacket. Boldly… Read more
