Hardcover first edition, first printing and true first edition. Stated First Edition with "1" present in complete number line. Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. (Despite the "First US Edition" statement on the copyright page, this US edition precedes the UK edition by 3 weeks.) Presentation copy signed by Clarke and dated in the European fashion as "23rd Sept 04" on the title page, the same month as publication, making this copy unique. This copy has the coveted creme colored jacket (now protected in a clear, archival sleeve.) Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. First edition first printings were issued in two jacket variants: one creme and the other black with red endpapers. (True first editions have red endpapers with a creme or black jacket. All later printings have white endpapers and black or red jackets only.) Collectors note all first printing points are present: "First U.S. Edition 2004" state on copyright page with full number line, $27.95 price on jacket flap and red endpapers. Collectors have edged toward collecting the creme colored jackets over the black as all later printings were published in black jackets only. Also, neither the the creme nor black colored jackets are laminated, making them very prone (especially the creme jacket), to wear and smudges. Time and handling have made the creme jackets the premier collector's trade edition. ''A quite extraordinary novel, not least because of the quiet, almost leisurely ways by which it achieves its extraordinariness.'' - Gary K. Wolfe, Locus. The US edition is already into its 8th printings.
