REACH FOR TOMORROW. New York: Ballantine Books, . Octavo, red cloth. First edition. Signed by Clarke on the front free endpaper. 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 bit of mild mottling to the cloth, a nearly fine copy in very good dust jacket with some rubbing to front panel and light dust soiling and faint staining to rear panel. An attractive copy of a scarce book which is seldom found in such nice condition. (#136270).
