Fountains Of Paradise

By Clarke, Arthur C




The Fountains of Paradise is a Hugo and Nebula Award winning 1979 novel by Arthur C. Clarke. Set in the 22nd century, it describes the construction of a space elevator. This "orbital tower" is a giant structure rising from the ground and linking with a satellite in geostationary at the height of approximately 36,000 kilometers (approx. 22,300 miles). Such a structure would be used to raise payloads to orbit without having to use rockets, making it much more cost-effective.

The Fountains of Paradise

Clarke, Arthur C

NY: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. Uncorrected proof. 180 pp. Full bound in blue wraps. Appears unread with fading along edges and spine and light creasing along top of front cover. Thus, NF/na. Fine (F) is our highest grade. This appears to be an early uncorrected proof. Page numbers are hand written and the publication date of January 29 1979 on the front cover is listed as "probable". In addition, the dimensions of the proof, 10.75 inches high by 5.5 inches wide, is atypical. (14635) . Near Fine. Soft cover. Uncorrected Proof. 1979.
