Three volumes (8 1/2 x 11 in). Volume 1 in original red leatherette boards (worn), volumes 2 & 3 in original red cloth (slightly worn). Volume 1 SIGNED IN BLACK INK ON FLY-LEAF "R.P. FEYNMAN / CALIF INSTIT. OF TECHNOLOGY/ PASADENA, CALIF./ 795-6811 EXT 2688." Volume 2 SIGNED IN BLACK INK ON FLY-LEAF "OFFICE. R P FEYNMAN."


FEYNMAN'S OWN OFFICE COPY OF HIS LEGENDARY LECTURES ON PHYSICS."...the best teaching can be done only when there is a direct individual relationship between a student and a good teacher—a situation in which the student discusses the ideas, thinks about the things, and talks about the things. It's impossible to learn very much by simply sitting in a lecture, or even by simply doing problems that are assigned.... Perhaps my lectures can make some contribution." (Richard Feynman, introduction, The Feynman Lectures on Physics).

Produced by Feynman with his co-authors Ralph Leighton and Matthew Sands, using photographs of the blackboards and tape-recordings of the lectures, The Feynman Lectures on Physics is both "a self-contained pedagogical treatise...[as well as] a historical record of Feynman's 1961-64 undergraduate physics lectures, a course required of all CalTech freshmen and sophomores regardless of their majors."(Preface to the 10th printing of The Feynman Lectures on Physics).
