This is an auction for THE GRAND DESIGN by Stephen Hawking & Leonard Mlodinow.

From Wikipedia:

"The Grand Design is a science book written by physicists Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow and published in 2010. The book examines the history of scientific knowledge about the universe and explains 11 dimension M-theory. The authors point out that a Unified Field Theory (a theory, based on an early model of the universe, proposed by Albert Einstein and other physicists) may not exist. It argues that invoking God is not necessary to explain the origins of the universe, and that the Big Bang is a consequence of the laws of physics alone. In response to criticism, Hawking has said; "One can't prove that God doesn't exist, but science makes God unnecessary." When pressed on his own religious views by the Channel 4 documentary Genius of Britain, he has clarified that he does not believe in a personal God. The book became the number one bestseller on Amazon.com just a few days after publication... The book examines the history of scientific knowledge about the universe. It starts with the Ionian Greeks, who claimed that nature works by laws, and not by the will of the gods. It later presents the work of Copernicus, who argued that the Earth is not located in the centre of the universe. The authors then describe the theory of quantum mechanics using, as an example, the probable movement of an electron around a room. The central claim of the book is that the theory of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity together help us understand how universes could have formed out of nothing..."
