REACH FOR TOMORROW. London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1962. Octavo, boards. First British edition. Clarke's second collection of short fiction, "twelve more sense-of-wonder tales, including such well-loved early pieces as 'Rescue Party' (1946), 'The Fires Within' (1949) and 'The Forgotten Enemy' (1953). Most are simply told, with twist endings. Quintessential SF." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 298. A touch of dulling to gold stamped author's name on spine panel, touch of foxing to endpapers, else a near fine copy in a very good plus dust jacket with some light soiling to yellow background, soiling to spine panel and edges more pronounced, slight shelf wear to corners and spine ends, and light mark to lower front panel. The UK edition is almost as hard to locate as the 1956 Ballantine hardbound issue. (#125325).
