Description

    Robert A. Heinlein, editor: Tomorrow, the Stars. (Garden City, New York: Doubleday, 1952), first edition, 249 pages, gray cloth with red lettering on spine, 8vo (5.5" x 8"), dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket illustration and design by Richard Powers. This collection gathers together previously unpublished stories by some of the all-time giants of science fiction: Asimov, del Rey, Finney, Leiber, and Vonnegut. In order to capitalize on Heinlein's stature within the science fiction community, Doubleday credited him with editing this amazing collection of speculative fiction. In fact, Frederik Pohl and Judith Merril assembled the stories; Heinlein's contributions were the introduction and his name on the cover. This copy is in fine condition, with the faintest age-toning to the textblock edges and a previous owner's bookplate affixed to the front pastedown. The dust jacket is about very good, with a small .75" tear at the top of the front panel, and worn slightly at the spine head. A nice collection of classic stories from some of science fiction's best. From the Ventura Collection.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
