New York: Meredith Press, 1967. First Edition. Hardcover. 6 1/8 X 9 1/4 Inches. 301 PP. Near Fine / Very Good. Item #6600
Stated "First Edition" on the copyright page. Original price of $6.95 intact on front flap. Signed and inscribed by Clarke to Frank Winter, former Curator of Rocketry of the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) of the Smithsonian Institution. Winter was also an internationally recognized historian of rocketry and spaceflight and the author of several landmark books in the field. Little doubt that Winter and Clarke had much in common. Fitting that Clarke's papers all now reside at the National Air and Space Museum. Interestingly, for fans of the show "Manhattan" (based on the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos, NM), the main character is named Frank Winter... I will let you jump to your own conclusions...
A fine collection of literature from some of the pioneers of space exploration and intergalactic writing. Includes work by Wernher Von Braun, C.S. Lewis, Clarke and early Carl Sagan among others. Book clean and tight. DJ a bit worn at edges, especially at spine ends.
