    Original Unfolded Dust Jacket and Virtually Unfolded Two-Color Test Print Dust Jacket for Robert Heinlein's The Green Hills of Earth. These dust jackets represent the second collaboration between Heinlein and Shasta Publishers, and the unfolded finished dust jacket was intended to protect the first edition of The Green Hills of Earth, published in 1951. Each measures approximately 20.75" x 8.25". As with both of the other Heinlein-Shasta publications, this dust jacket was illustrated by Hubert Rogers. The finished dust jacket is unfolded and in near mint condition, with minute staining on the rear panel. The two-color test print is in very good condition, with folds at the rear panel-spine fold, minimal bottom edge wear, and a diagonal crease to the front panel. Still, an incomplete state of a Heinlein jacket is rare in any condition. This is a truly remarkable pair of dust jackets.
