Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First UK edition, first print hardback of THE SALMON OF DOUBT, by Douglas Adams and published by Macmillan, London in 2002. Jacket design by David Tran. Full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2.

The book is in very good condition indeed (Clean black boards with silver lettering on spine) with only minor shelf wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (minor creasing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

From the dust jacket blurb:

'You are on the verge of entering the wise, provoking, benevolent, hilarious and addictive world of Douglas Adams. The bottom drawer of recently deceased writers is often best left firmly locked and bolted: in the case of Douglas, the nested subfolders of his hard drive have been triumphantly well worth the prising open. His natural ability to put one word after another in the service of awakening, delighting, bamboozling, informing or amusing the mind of his reader never fails.' STEPHEN FRY

The Salmon of Doubt comprises ten chapters of the novel on which Douglas Adams was working at the time of his death in May 2001, along with an astonishing collection of pieces recovered from his beloved Macintosh computer.

The plot of The Salmon of Doubt is as intriguing as its title and sees Dirk Gently simultaneously on the trail of half a cat and an actor whose sudden appearance is perhaps not as random as it seems. Starring alongside the pizza- addicted detective are Thor, Norse God of Thunder, Dave of DaveLand and a highly confused rhinoceros called Desmond. Other fictional stories include 'Young Zaphod Plays It Safe', featuring the intergalactic star of the Hitchhiker series, and 'The Private Life of Ghengis Khan', written with Graham Chapman, in which the emotional needs of a barbaric marauding killer are revealed.

Non-fiction pieces range from an earnest twelve-year-old Douglas's letter to Eagle magazine, through insights into a teenage mind full of adoration for the Beatles and loathing for short trousers, to lectures reflecting Adams's exceptional understanding of our natural, technological and philosophical worlds. Here too are articles on subjects as diverse as religion, the 'little dongly things' making a mess of computers, the letter Y and Douglas's love affair with two dogs in New Mexico.

For fans and new readers alike, The Salmon of Doubt is the ultimate smorgasbord of the insanities, urbanities and wondrous workings of life, the universe and everything.

299 pages.
