The City and the Stars

by Clarke, Arthur C

Condition: Very Good/Very Good


USA: Harcourt Brace & Company, 1956 An expansion of Clarke's first novel "Against the Fall of Night". First edition. Not price-clipped, not bumped. There is a bookplate from a previous owner on the back of the front cover. The front of the dust jacket has three small tears at the bottom, all approximately a quarter-inch (6 mm) long. Aside from these flaws, this is a very sharp looking copy of this seminal work (see photos). Comes in an archival protective cover. All books are bubble-wrapped and placed in a sturdy shipping box when mailed.
