The author’s copy of the first Swedish edition of Hawking’s global bestseller from his personal library until its removal from Stephen Hawking’s home in Cambridge after his death. Blue cloth binding with the posthumous deep blue-rimmed bookplate on the first flyleaf that reads: ‘From the home of Stephen W Hawking (1942-2018) Wordsworth Grove, Cambridge November 2020 G. David. Bookseller. Cambridge’. A near fine copy in a very good jacket with a couple of closed tears. Hawking’s Brief History was one of the most unexpected bestsellers in publishing history and made a successful physicist into a global celebrity. This Swedish edition would have been sent to Hawking by the publisher, probably via his agent as his personal file copy and remained at his specially designed home at Wordsworth Grove until his death. Hawking trained as a theoretical physicist, collaborated with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems and worked on black hole radiation.
