Travelling Clocks vs Einstein's TheoryFirst edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author to "Desmond King-Hele, with kindest regards and best thanks, for unique help (p.74), Herbert Dingle."

Dr. King-Hele died on Christmas day 2019, amongst his many achievements he is considered one of the pioneers of space and satellite geodesy.
