Book Description hardcover. Condition: very good. London, Temple 1951 [1950]. Octavo dustwrapper (this a little used); 164pp, 16 plates, illustrations & diagrams in the text. Second printing of Clarke's first book, with some corrections and 'more rigorous' treatment of transit velocities. The approach is astronomical rather than engineering, there being several excellent books on rocket technology, but none in English which develop the theory of astronautics in any detail.

Book Description Harper & Brothers n.d.[post 1953], New York, 1953. 3rd impression. With 16 pls, 14 text figs. (illustrator). First Amer. ed. 7 1/2 x 5", viii, 164 p., Author's first book. The 2nd impression corrected misprints & minor errors. This, the 3rd impression, includes an update note, but the text remains unchanged. The British sheets were used for this edition. The post-1953 publication date for this impression is suggested bythe appearance of "1950-53" after Clarke's name on the t.p. and a laid-in article from Time Magazine dated Sept. 1954. This is a clean, crisp copy with a DJ that has done its job yet still looks good, especially in its mylar covering. VG. Blue cl. Edge tears & wear to DJ, esp. to spine ends., Good DJ.
