Item Number: 392

New York: New American Library, 1968.

First edition of the author’s most well-known work. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author. An excellent example in a near fine dust jacket that shows just a touch of wear. Housed in a custom clamshell box.

Arthur C. Clarke wrote this novel while Stanley Kubrick created the film, the two collaborating on both projects. The novel is much more detailed and intimate, and definitely easier to comprehend. Even though history has disproved its "predictions," it's still loaded with exciting and awe-inspiring science fiction. -Brooks Peck Dazzling...wrenching...a mind-bender. (Time) By standing the universe on its head, he makes us see the ordinary universe in a different light. (New Yorker)
