    Publisher's tan cloth with red titles. In original pictorial dust jacket priced $2.95. Trivial edge and spine wear, and faint toning to the textblock. Dust jacket corners and spine ends with minimal wear, and a lightly sunned spine. All in all, a near fine copy.

    The eleventh installment in Heinlein's juvenile series published at Scribner's between 1947 and 1958. "Emphasis is not on characterization or incident, but explaining alternate ways of organizing society, and dramatizing distinction between owning and controlling, having power and using it. Early instance of using juvenile science fiction for explaining and pushing ideas rather than merely relating exciting incidents." (Barron: Anatomy of Wonder [1976] 319)

    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.
