Description:
Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press [1985], 1985. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/very near Fine. 8vo. [11], x, [5], 4-158, [4] pp. Bound in black cloth with purple metallic lettering on the spine. Price of $18.50 on front flap of dust jacket. As of this writing, an authoritative biblography for Feynman has not been produced. Both book and jacket are found in multiple states, but priority has not been convincingly established. The present copy has purple lettering rather than the gold lettering found on some copies and the jacket lacks the advertising blurb on the rear flap present on some of the jackets we have seen. A very attractive copy of this book which Gleick (in his well-known biography of Feynman) refers to as "a model of science writing" Name and date written on free front endpaper, else Fine in a sharp very near Fine dust jacket.
