    Heinlein with Cross-Over Appeal

    Robert A. Heinlein. Stranger in a Strange Land. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, [1961]. First edition, first printing with code "C22" on page 408, first printing dust jacket priced $4.50 on the front flap. Octavo. 408 pages. Publisher's green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, in original dust jacket. Housed in custom clamshell case. A fine copy in very good repaired dust jacket with closed tear along lower front spine fold, several tiny edge tears and small chips from spine ends and corner tips mended and re-colored by a paper conservator. The jacket presents well overall.

    Winner of the 1962 Hugo award for best novel. "Of all Heinlein's works this is the best known. It reached large audiences farther away from his science fiction roots than anything else he wrote... Stranger's cultural impact on an entire generation is, nonetheless, undeniable." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 3-91. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-518. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2195-2200.
