    Description

    Robert A. Heinlein. The Rolling Stones. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, [1952].

    First edition. Octavo. 276 pages with illustrations throughout.

    Green cloth with blue cover art and blue lettering on spine. A beautiful copy with slight bumping to one corner and top edge of rear board. Apparently unread, the textblock is tight and white, with clever white-on-black illustrations by Clifford Geary. Pictorial dust jacket bears a tiny chip at fold edge, else near fine.

    This rollicking tale of space exploration was written for young adults as part of the Heinlein Juvenile series, twelve novels for young readers that were published by Scribner's between 1947 and 1958. This is one of the more elusive Heinlein titles, and is in near fine condition.
