Expedition to Earth

Arthur C. Clarke

ont> Sidgwick and Jackson Limited : London, 1954 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. The first UK edition of this collection of short stories by noted author Arthur C. Clarke. First published in the US in 1953. Arthur C. Clarke was a British science fiction writer and inventor, who is widely regarded as a key figure in the popularisation of space travel. His screenplay for the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was co-written with Stanley Kubrick, is considered to be one of the most influential films of all time. For many years Arthur C. Clarke, along with Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asmiov, were considered the 'Big Three' of science fiction writing. Lacking the original dustwrapper. Expedition to Earth is Clarke's first published collection of short stories and was published shortly after the release of what is often described as Clarke's best novel, 'Childhood's End'. Condition: In a blue cloth binding. Externally very smart, with some slight wear to the extremities and bumping to the head and tail of the spine. Spine and extremities are sunned. A few marks to the boards. Internally firmly bound. Pages generally bright and clean, with some age toning, due to the paper used. The odd spot. Overall Condition: Very Good.
