    the very first..

    To mean that a book was the first written (about a subject , a person, something..........) ever (I mean: before the writing of the book in question nobody had ever written about the subject):

    which one is correct:

    1. it is the first biographical book dedicated to MC.
    2. it is the very first biographical book dedicated to MC

    and also:
    a book dedicated to or about

    THANKS

    Re: the very first..

    Hello minnie2007!

    In this case, you should put it is the first biographical book dedicated to MC.

    If you want to say that that it is TRULY the first, you can say the VERY FIRST book.

    And it is dedicated to, never ABOUT.

    All the best!

    Re: the very first..

    ''the first biographical book dedicated to MC'' sounds a bit odd to me.
    ''the first biographical book about MC'' is fine.
