Fluid Concepts and Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought” was the first book ever sold on Amazon.com.  The book was ordered by John Wainwright on April 3, 1995 over a T-1 connection.  The image above show the book along with its original packing slip.  
The book was written by Douglas Hofstadter, a professor of cognitive science known for his insightful quotes: 
“Since most women are kind of different from the top-model image, there is a constant losing battle of self-image.  It’s damaging when every woman that’s portrayed in the media or who are on the covers of magazines are part of a stereotypical form of beauty, whereas the average woman is not.”
