"The Difference Engine" by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling

Victor Gollancz, London - 1990 first UK edition first printing - signed by both authors (dated in fictional London in 1855) on title page - 382p, 18cmx15cm - condition: good, some staining on rear endpaper, with very good first issue dust jacket.

The Difference Engine (1990) is an alternative history novel by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. It is widely regarded as a book that helped establish the genre conventions of steampunk.

It posits a Victorian era Britain in which great technological and social change has occurred after entrepreneurial inventor Charles Babbage succeeded in his ambition to build a mechanical computer (actually his Analytical Engine rather than the difference engine).

The novel was nominated for the British Science Fiction Award in 1990, the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1991, and both the John W. Campbell Memorial Award and the Prix Aurora Award in 1992.
