Hardcover first edition, first printing and true first edition. Stated First Edition with "1" present in complete number line. (Despite the "First US Edition" statement on the copyright page, the US edition precedes the UK edition by 3 weeks.) Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. Signed by Clarke on the title page. This copy is the coveted creme jacket variant. The creme jacket shows some light scuff marks, a defect for which these unlaminated creme jackets are particularly prone. (Now protected in a clear, archival sleeve.) Also, there's an unfortunate tape ghost, very faint but visible, on the outside of the jacket's spine panel near the heel approx. 4.5 cm x 1.0 cm in size. Very light bumping at head and heel of jacket spine panel and upper tips, but without associated crinkling. Aside from these defects a fine copy in near fine jacket. A straight, square copy without price-clipping or previous owner's marks. All First Edition points are present: "First U.S. Edition 2004" stated with full number line present. Red endpapers with $27.95 price intact. (True first printings have red endpapers with a creme or black jacket. All later printings have white endpapers and black or red jackets only.) The first edition was issued in two jacket states: one creme and the other black. Also, neither the the creme nor black colored jackets were laminated by the publisher, making them very prone (especially the creme jacket), to wear and smudges. ''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 well past its 8th printing and appears with red jackets.
