    Description

    Robert A. Heinlein. Starship Troopers. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, [1959].

    First edition. Octavo. 309 pages. Jacket illustration by Jerry Robinson.

    Publisher's blue cloth with silver titles. In first issue pictorial dust jacket priced $3.95. Minor edge wear, lightly bumped corners, and mild toning to the textblock edges. Dust jacket marginally dust-soiled, with minimal edge wear, some rubbing to the panels, one small nick at the front top right corner, and a sunned spine. Overall, a very good copy.

    "...Heinlein interrupted work on what would become Stranger in a Strange Land (1961) to write Starship Troopers (1959), which argues the necessity and worth of service, especially military service. Its graphic battles with the alien Bugs led Scribner's to reject the book, and it was published by Putnam..." (Gunn: The New Encyclopedia of Science Fiction 221)
