    Description

    Robert A. Heinlein. Citizen of the Galaxy. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1957.

    First edition. Contains the "A" and "7.57 v" code on copyright page. Octavo. 302 pages. Jacket design by Leonard Everett Fisher.

    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)

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
