REACH FOR TOMORROW. New York: Ballantine Books, [1956]. Small octavo, blue 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. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 3-104. Text block tanned as usual, cloth spine panel and edges lightly faded, a near fine copy in very good dust jacket with some age-darkening to white background of spine and rear panels and mild rubbing to corners and spine ends with slight loss. A nice copy of a very elusive book. (#96197).
