    Robert A. Heinlein. Starman Jones. Illustrated by Clifford Geary. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, [1953].

    First printing. Octavo. xii, 305 pages.

    Publisher's green cloth covers with the front cover stamped with a green illustration. Spine lettered in green. Illustrated dust jacket in dark green, light green, yellow, and white. Jacket is very lightly rubbed, very minor bumping to the corners, head, and foot of the jacket spine. Altogether a near fine copy.

    First printing copy due to the presence of the A and the Scribner seal on the copyright page. First printing of the jacket is evidenced due to the presence of the typed price on the front inner flap. Robert Anson Heinlein (July 7, 1907 - May 8, 1988) wrote this juvenile novel about a child with an eidetic, or photographic, memory and his desire to travel to the stars. This work is part of Scribner's Heinlein juveniles series.
