Douglas Adams, "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" scarce First Edition, First Impression, signed by the Author to the Title Page. A sought after First Edition Signed book by the much loved author of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is the first ever fully realised Ghost - Horror - Detective - Whodunnit - Time-Travel - Musical - Comedy Epic. Dirk Gently himself is a detective - well sort of a detective.There is a great and long and honourable tradition of Great Detectives and Dirk Gently does not belong to it. Sherlock holmes observed that once you have eliminated the impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. Dirk Gently, however, does not like to eliminate the impossible... The book is in very good collectable condition and has been signed by the author to the title page. There are no other inscriptions. The dust cover has light edgewear, the text block is still tight with pleasingly crisp pages and just lightly tanned without any foxing or marks to the inner body of text. The slight tanning to the paper is due to the age of the book and the type of paper stock used and is quite usual for this volume. An absolute must for any fan of the genius Douglas Adams and his timeless classic books that have already entertained generations and will undoubtedly continue to do so. A super modern day classic to invest in. It was related to me by the late family member that this book and the other signed Douglas Adams volume I have available was signed in person at a publisher event that was attended many years ago.
The book has been treasured for over 30 years so its important to me that it will go to another appreciative owner. Condition Notes: Signed First Edition, First Impression, 1st/1st, Very Good Condition. Mild Toning to outer text block (usual for this volume due to paperstock used) no foxing, Light Shelfwear and minor edgeware to Dust Jacket, tiny mark to inner rear flap of Dust Jacket, age discolouration.
