    Description

    A Very Attractive Copy

    Robert A. Heinlein. The Star Beast. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, [1954]. First edition. Octavo. [vi], 282 pages. Publisher's black cloth, spine and front board lettered in blue, in original dust jacket. A fine copy in nearly fine first state dust jacket ("$2.50" printed price not clipped or overprinted); with a bit of tanning, internal, but with light show-through on spine panel, and very mild general dust soiling (much less than usual for this easily soiled jacket).

    More Information:

    "The youthful hero has an alien 'pet' called Lummox, and this creature turns out to be a great deal more important than anyone suspects. It becomes the cause of a diplomatic incident when a spacecraft arrives to reclaim its own. A wholly delightful novel for teenagers ... Funny and inventive: one of Heinlein's best books from his best period." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 343.
