The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

London: Folio Society, 2010. First Thus. Hardcover. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first Folio Society Edition Introduced by Terry Jones and Illustrated by Jonathan Burton, with the spine lettered and decorated in silver, the front board decorated in silver and blindstamped, and the end papers decorated with silver; in a Fine slipcase; the author's first novel in the Hitchhiker's series of novels, a set of works based on the misadventures of Earth's the last surviving man, Arthur Dent, the only person to survive the demolition of the planet Earth by a Vogon constructor fleet to make way for a hyperspace bypass, and who hitches a ride on a passing Vogon spacecraft. His rescuer, "Ford Prefect", is a human-like alien writer for the eccentric, electronic travel guide The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Following his rescue, Dent explores the galaxy with his rescuer, Prefect, and encounters Trillian, a human that had been taken from Earth prior to its destruction by Zaphod Beeblebrox -- the two-headed President of the Galaxy. Dent also meets a depressed and paranoid android called Marvin. The "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" originated as a 1978 BBC radio comedy before developing into a "trilogy" of five books that sold more than 15 million copies in his lifetime and generated a television series, several stage plays, comics, a computer game, and in 2005 a feature film. [A sixth novel in the series "And Another Thing..." was authored by Eoin Colfer several years after Adams died.] The book is surprisingly uncommon to the market, especially when in a condition as nice as is this copy. A Fine, Superior, copy. Fine. Item #809
