New York: New American Library (NAL), 1968. First Edition. First issue, with NAL printed in red at the foot of the jacket spine.
Basis for (and released simultaneously with) Stanley Kubrick's 1968 science fiction classic, written for the screen by Kubrick and Clarke based on Clarke's short story, "The Sentinel." The standard by which all science fiction films since have been judged.
Near Fine in a Near Fine, price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket has a couple of tiny, nearly undetectible closed tears, else a lovely copy.
