"THE FULLY UNLEASHED HEINLEIN": FIRST EDITION OF HIS CONTROVERSIAL CLASSIC, STARSHIP TROOPERS

HEINLEIN, Robert. Starship Troopers. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, (1959). Octavo, original dark blue cloth, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6000.

First edition, first issue, of Heinlein's ingenious Hugo Award-winning novel, in scarce dust jacket.

"Originally written as a juvenile but rejected by Scribner's because of its violence, Starship Troopers is the first title in which Heinlein expressed his opinions with unfettered vigor. A tale of interstellar war, it won a 1960 Hugo Award but also gained Heinlein the reputation of being a militarist, even a 'fascist… This [novel], for good and for ill, was the fully unleashed Heinlein" (Clute & Nicholls, 555). First edition, first issue with "anywhen" on dedication page, in scarce first issue dust jacket, with $3.95 price and no mention of the Hugo Award. Currey, 193.

Minor wear to dust jacket spine ends. A nearly fine copy.
