About this Item: Holden-Day, Inc., San Francisco, 1966. Condition: Very Good +. No Jacket. First Edition. 509 pp. Red cloth over boards in very good plus condition with only a tiny and barely noticeable darker spot on rear cover and the slightest wrinkling on center spine that do not affect the title. The interior is clean and crisp throughout. The book treats the astronomical background of the possibility of life on other planets, the nature of life and its possible occurrence in our solar system and the possibility that advanced communicative technical civilizations exist on pllanets of other stars, as well as the psychological perils of the study of extraterrestrial life. The authors are scientists Carl Sagan of Harvard Univerity and Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and J. S. Shklovskii of Sternberg Astronomical Institute and Soviet Academy of Sciences. "As the reader might expect for a book written by two authors, one in the Soviet Union and one in the United States, there are occasional ideological differences. I have not tried to avoid these problems, but I also have not tried, in what is a primarily a scientific work, to rebut each ideological assertion." (Preface by Sagan) Nonetheless, these two prominent scientists shared deep respect for each other's scientific work and insights. Size: Octavo. Seller Inventory # 025176

About this Item: San Francisco, London, Amsterdam: Holden-Day, Inc., 1966, 1966. Square octavo. Original cloth. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy with small chips to the ends and corners. Illustrations in the text throughout. First edition, first printing, of Carl Sagan's first book, concerning the topic that consumed him throughout his life. This wonderful association copy comes from the library, with ownership stamp to the front free endpaper, of Dr Homer E. Newell Jr. (1915-1983). Newell was a mathematics professor and author who became a powerful US government science administrator, rising eventually to the third in command of NASA. In the early 1960s he controlled or influenced virtually all non-military unmanned space missions for the free world. He played a significant role in the negotiations which led to the creation of NASA, chairing a committee of rocket and satellite experimenters that drafted a consensus plan for a national space establishment which was presented to Eisenhower's science advisor, and advising the Senate preparedness investigating subcommittee. When the legislation establishing NASA was passed in 1958, Newell was given credit by his peers, including Van Allen, who called him "The Spark Plug" for a strong space science element in NASA. Newell joined NASA in 1958 (the year this book was published), and was successively assistant director for space sciences (1958-1960), deputy director of space flight programs (1960-1961), director of space sciences (1961-1963), associate administrator for space science and applications (1963-1967) and finally associate administrator of NASA, the third ranking position, from 1967 until 1974 (and as such overseeing the Moon Landing.) (1967-1974). In 1965, Newell was awarded the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service. He was also commemorated in the Goddard Space Flight Center's Homer E. Newell memorial library, and asteroid 2086 Newell. Seller Inventory # 114394
