    Description

    Robert A. Heinlein: Starship Troopers. (New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1959), first edition, 309 pages, blue cloth with silver lettering on spine and front cover, 8vo (5.5" x 8"), first issue $3.95 dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Jacket illustration by Jerry Robinson. Originally serialized in October and November, 1959 as "Starship Soldier", Starship Troopers won the 1960 Hugo Award for Best Novel. Since its publication, Heinlein has been criticized for this novel, which some readers have found too militaristic and pro-fascist. Whatever your point of view, this is a rare chance to acquire Starship Troopers in such pristine condition. This copy is in virtually new condition, with no noticeable flaws present. The book comes housed in a beautiful custom quarter leather slipcase with marbled boards. From the Ventura Collection.
