Stephen Hawking’s copy of Richard Feynman’s Dirac Memorial lecture given in Cambridge, an event he presumably attended.

First edition bound in crimson cloth with the posthumous deep blue-rimmed bookplate to the verso of the cover that reads: ‘From the home of Stephen W Hawking (1942-2018) Wordsworth Grove, Cambridge November 2020 G. David. Bookseller. Cambridge’. There is a long-dried tide mark running along the lower 1cm of the book’s text block, in all likelihood n accident to the book while being read by Hawking although there is no other marking to the text.

Shortly after these lectures were given Stephen Hawking’s Brief History became one of the most unexpected bestsellers in publishing history and made a successful physicist into a global celebrity. This copy of Feynman’s lecture 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; he and Feynman met several times.
