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

First UK edition, first print hardback of COSMOS, by Carl Sagan and published by Macdonald Futura Publishers, London, in 1981.

The book is in very good condition (Clean two-tone black cloth boards with white and red lettering on the spine), with only minor shelf wear to the pictorial dust jacket which is not price clipped (light rubbing to the edges, bumping to corners, slight yellowing inside the jacket). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

This visually stunning book with over 250 full colour illustrations, is based on Carl Sagan's 13-part television series. Told with Sagan's remarkable ability to make scientific ideas both comprehensible and exciting, Cosmos is about science in the broadest human context, how science and civilisation grew up together.

The book also explores spacecraft missions of discovery of the nearby planets, the research in the Library of ancient Alexandria, the human brain, Egyptian Hieroglyphics, the origin of life, the death of the Sun, the evolution of galaxies and the origins of matter, suns and worlds.

Sagan retraces the fifteen billion years of cosmic evolution that have transformed matter into life and consciousness, enabling the Cosmos to wonder about itself. He considers the (then) latest findings on life elsewhere and how we might communicate with the beings of other worlds.

345 pages. Plus Index, Appendices and Further Reading. Profusely illustrated with colour and black & white pictures.

ISBN: 0 354 04531 8
