Book Description New York, Macmillan 1963., 1963. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition. Hardcover. Quarto-size. A tiny fingernail-size erasure mark on the front free endpaper, otherwise fine in fine dustjacket with a touch of rubbing at the extremities and a few small professionally closed tears. The jacket is not price-clipped, with the top corner noting that "Until Dec. 31, 1963, $14.95/ $17.50" , a not uncommon practice whereby the upper price was clipped after the initial offer date, leaving the higher price for those slow to purchase. A fascinating book on the history of inventions, profusely illustrated with b/w and colour illustrations and photographs from various sources, a fine reference. From a collecting viewpoint, this is Umberto Eco's first publication in English, coming twenty years before his famous novel debut (in English) of "The Name of the Rose". His co-author here (the book having a first Italian edition in 1961) is G.B. Zorzoli, a nuclear physicist and professor at the Polytechnical Institute in Milan. The book's excellent design is credited to Bruno Munari, in collaboration with Renate Ramge, whom Eco was later to marry. This heavy book will cost more to send overseas, than any default postage rate noted. Seller Inventory # 34719
