Comments & Further Information

First UK edition with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing. In very good+ condition for its age. Some tanning to pages. Minor bump to base of book spine. Price still on dust jacket. SYNOPSIS: “Before science and technology took hold of our lives we called them different things: angels, demons, fairies. But in a world in which man has discovered his cosmic insignificance, our need for aliens has reached the stars – and our search for them has drawn our gaze upwards rather than to the bottom of the garden. Covering everything from the joyful anthropocentrism of Star Trek to the bloody-minded nihilism of Stanislaw Lem, Aliens is both a brilliantly entertaining cultural history and an intellectual tour de force.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
