The Restaurant at the end of the Universe - Douglas Adams 1980 - Arthur Barker Limited, London - First Hardback Edition If you’ve done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the end of the Universe?

Which is exactly what the crew of the Heart of Gold plan to do. There’s just the small matter of escaping the Vogons, avoiding being taken to the most totally evil world in the Galaxy and teaching a space ship how to make a proper cup of tea. And did anyone actually make a reservation?
  Douglas Adams, chicken-shed cleaner, body guard, Pink Floyd guitarist (once), ‘a brief mutually non-beneficial involvement with the Monty Python Team’, and then after writing the radio series which became these books, was script editor for Doctor Who, a cult figure in fantasy fiction heaven who tragically died at the age of 49.

This is definitely the true first edition with a hard back. Oh alright, this was also issued by Pan Books in paperback first, and in the same action taken with Hitch Hikers, librarians are also suspected of having been involved in this dastardly act.

8vo. pp. 187.
