New York: Pantheon Books, 1992. First Edition. Quarto. 334 pages. Signed by author on half title page to William Safire with inscription, "To Bill Safire, / with great respect / and best wishes, / Steven Weinberg / Nov 1999."
Illustrated unclipped dust jacket shows light creasing to spine ends and corners. Blue boards in blue cloth with spine stamped in gilt. A trifle rubbed at spine ends and top edge. Binding is sound. Article from Newsweek on Stephen Hawking laid in at rear. A few notes in Safire's hand to final page and a few lines underlined around page 35.
