Interplanetary Flight: An Introduction to Astronautics, Arthur C. Clarke
First edition, first printing of Clarke's first book, a modestly technical introduction to space exploration. Signed by Clarke on a laid-in bookplate.
London: Temple Press, 1950. A near fine copy in a near fine, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight and sturdy, minimal wear to boards with a trace of sunning, internally clean with no markings. Jacket shows light shelfwear to extremities and a touch of toning, protected in archival mylar. A very presentable copy.
