REACH FOR TOMORROW. New York: Ballantine Books, . Octavo, red cloth. First 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. Text block tanned (here less than usual), a fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with light wear to corner tips, minor shelf wear to lower spine end with slight loss at right lower corner, and mild dust soiling to rear panel. A superior copy of a scarce book which is seldom found in such nice condition. (#126401).
