The Exploration of Space

CLARKE, Arthur C.

New York: Harper and Brothers, 1951. Very Good. First American edition. An about very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley, who was the dedicatee of his first hardcover novel (Islands in the Sky): "To Ian, wishing you the very best of luck. Arthur C. Clarke, Atlanta, 10 June '52." Macauley was an award-winning New York Times journalist, who also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds! (2000). Clarke wrote the last chapter of Childhood's End while visiting Macauley in Atlanta in 1952, where he was reportedly greatly influenced by their discussions. A splendid association copy of this non-fiction work.

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. Condition: In a blue cloth binding in the original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally very smart, with some slight bumping to the head and tail of the spine. Slight sunning to the head and tail of the spine.
