Rama II

London: Victor Gollancz, 1989.


Hardcover. First edition. Ownership signature of Ian Macauley, else fine in fine dustwrapper. Signed by Clarke on the half-title, as well as Inscribed to his protégé, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley, who was the dedicatee of his first hardcover novel (*Islands in the Sky*): "To Marnie and Ian - all best. Arthur, 28 October 89." Macauley was an award-winning *New York Times* journalist, who also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, *Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds!* (2000). Clarke wrote the last chapter of *Childhood's End* while visiting Macauley in Atlanta in 1952, where he was reportedly greatly influenced by their discussions. A splendid association copy.
