The View from Serendip

CLARKE, Arthur C.

New York: Random House, 1977. Fine/Fine. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with slight toning to the edges of the flaps. Inscribed by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley; "To Ian, this souvenir of a quarter century! All the best, Arthur. NYC 11 Oct. 77." Macauley, an award-winning New York Times journalist, was the dedicatee of Clarke's first published hardcover novel, Islands in the Sky (1952). He also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds! (2000). Clarke wrote the last chapter of Childhood End, while visiting Macauley in Atlanta, where he was reportedly greatly influenced by their discussions. A nice association copy of this miscellany, including speculations on space, science and the sea, a short science-fiction story, and "an equatorial autobiography." Macauley has made several pencil and pen alterations in the text, apparently while preparing the essays for the collected volume.

'Serendip' is one of the ancient names for Sri Lanka, Arthur C. Clarke's home for many years and in this collection of essays, which he calls 'a first approximation to an autobiography'. He gives a delightful account of his continuing love affair with the island, discussing its history and society, and describing his exploits diving for treasure in the wrecks which dot the island's reefs. But his main theme is, as one would expect, the future, and the implications for mankind of scientific and technological developments. **** NOT EX LIB **** . First Edition. Hard Cover.
