The Selfish Gene - Signed By The Author

£250.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book tells of the selfish gene. A world of savage competition, ruthless exploitation, and deceit. But what of the acts of apparent altruism in nature the bees who commit suicide when they sting to protect the hive, for example? Professor Dawkins holds out the hope that our species has the power to rebel against the designs of the selfish gene.

This copy is signed by the author Richard Dawkins, on the title page without any form of dedication to the original owner.
All other pages are entirely unmarked, the book is tightly bound and there is almost no wear and tear to the dust jacket beyond some light fading to the spine edge and light yellowing to the edges. The jacket is not price clipped and the corners of the book are not bumped at all. Please ask if you would like any more photos or information. This is a great opportunity to own a very rare copy of an important title.

The book's cover illustration is by Desmond Morris and entitled "The Expectant Valley" and the photograph of the author inside the back of the book was taken by Richard Kenward.

It will be sent out via the Courier DHL at no additional cost and will be trackable with the need for a signature upon delivery.
