Douglas Adams
Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy Douglas Adams 1st edition first dj Barker 1979
London: Arthur Barker, 1979. The book is NOT ex-library and in very good plus condition and complete and intact with clean boards and bright pages and looks hardly read. The dustjacket is very good and complete with faint and now dry tape marks on the inner edges of its flaps (perhaps small pieces of tape were once used to fix it into a dustjacket holder that is now long gone.) There are just faint signs of age and use, which are best appreciated by studying the photos in this listing. This is the first state of the first printing of the first hardback edition of Douglas Adams' first and most famous book, published in 1979 by Arthur Barker (ISBN 0213167387). The first state means that it has the scarce first type of dustjacket with the Capricorn One ad on the rear panel. This is easily the most sought-after book by Douglas Adams, the one everybody wants. The other later state first edition dustjacket had a blank, blue panel inserted where the Capricorn advert had previously been displayed. All that remained of the ad on the 2nd state jacket was a white line down the rear edge of its spine. Also, this first state jacket has the price of £4-95 on the front flap, because it was actually sold in UK bookshops. The second state dustjacket has no price, perhaps because it was mainly intended for export or for early book club distribution. Will be posted in bubblewrap and cardboard to protect it carefully. Jacket will be protected by removable clear cellophane when delivered.
