    More Information:

    Robert A. Heinlein. The Man Who Sold the Moon. Chicago: Shasta Publishers, [1940]. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by Heinlein to the publisher, on an inserted leaf at front.

    Inscription reads "To Erle M. Korshak/A unique publisher!/Robert A. Heinlein". Although Shasta produced a small number of "subscriber's copies" of this title, with a signed leaf by Heinlein inserted, this one is inscribed, not merely signed. Octavo. 288 pages. Publisher's binding, dust jacket. Some minor rubbing to jacket, a neat diagonal indentation on the front board of the binding, gutter before the half-title (where the inserted leaf is) is overopened. Overall, a very good copy, unusual with such an excellent inscription.
