Paris: Hachette, 1990. First edition. 8vo, 664 pp, publisher's wraps. Association copy, inscribed by Thom to Gérard Jorland; ""A Gérard Jorland, au moins une dédicace… Avec mes meilleurs souvenirs de sa collaboration."
A superb association between the founder of Catastrophe Theory and a prominent historian of science. Books inscribed by Thom are rarely encountered in the market.
The importance of Thom's work is widely acknowledged in the sciences, but his work also was an important influence on music and the arts - for instance, his work was an influence on John Balance, particularly on the first Coil album.
Lower tip lightly bumped throughout, some minor toning else near fine. Item #29567
