London: Pan, 1984. [Comedy-Fantasy] INSCRIBED FIRST EDITION. Octavo (22 x 14cm). pp.191; . Bound in publisher's black cloth with titles in silver to spine. Black dust jacket, designed by Gary Day-Ellison, with holographic panel to front cover, and titles in white to front cover and spine, unclipped. With signed presentation note to title page; "To Gamma | Best Wishes | Douglas Adams | 1 xii 84 [underlined]". Lightly handled. A fine copy. The title is the final message from the dolphins to mankind, which was misinterpreted as a surprisingly sophisticated attempt to do a double-backward somersault through a hoop while whistling the "Star Spangled Banner." Less a space travel, and more a time travel narrative, which focuses primarily on the romance between Arthur Dent and Fenchurch, So Long is the fourth book in the Hitch-Hiker's Guide trilogy of five parts.
