Dragon's Egg by Robert L. Foreward [CHEELA #1]


Hardcover with dust jacket in BIZARRE condition. 

Dust jacket is nice; some visible shelf wear.

Book itself has a few dozen cropped pages or so at the rear of the book.  A little wonky  but still very readable.

"In science fiction there is only a handful of books that stretch the mind--and Dragon's Egg is one of them."--Arthur C. Clarke

In a moving story of sacrifice and triumph, human scientists establish a relationship with intelligent lifeforms--the cheela--living on Dragon's Egg, a neutron star where one Earth hour is equivalent to hundreds of their years. The cheela culturally evolve from savagery to the discovery of science, and for a brief time, men are their diligent teachers.
