A Fall of Moondust

by Clarke, Arthur C

Condition: Very Good/Very Good

London: Victor Gollancz, 1961 First edition, second printing. The book has the name of a previous owner written in pen on the front end page and a slight musty odor. The dust jacket has two small tears, one at top of the front cover near the gutter, the other at the bottom of the rear page, also near the gutter. Neither are very noticeable with the archival protective cover is on (the photos are with the cover off). Overall, a nice copy of an early Clarke work. All books are bubble-wrapped and placed in a sturdy shipping box when mailed. Tracking number provided with domestic shipments.
