Very Good / Very Good. Item #8538
New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Inc., 1973. First Edition. Bookplate signed by Clarke loosely laid in at front. Octavo. 303 pages. Illustrated dust jacket. Black boards stamped in gilt, blue, and green. Yellow endpapers.
Price-clipped dust jacket is worn and toned along edges with some light creasing and general rubbing. Boards show very light shelfwear to extremities and binding gives a little but is sound. Some light foxing to edges of text block but pages otherwise clean and unmarked.
Winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards and one of Clarke's most enduring works.
