    More Information:

    New York: Gnome Press, [1949].

     

    First edition. Octavo. 256 pages.

     

    Publisher's black cloth with red stamping. Cloth has minor rubbing to edges and corners; boards have some spotting and a few small abrasions. Very slight lean to spine. The dust jacket is exceptionally crisp and bright with none of the typical fading. It appears that the book and jacket may have been put together at some point as their conditions do not completely match. A near fine copy.

     

    Still a controversial book sixty years after publication for its portrayal of racism. Arguments have raged for years between Heinlein fans and critics over his views on several subjects, with racism generating some of the most heated discussions.

     

    Currey, p. 234.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
