Near Fine; Near Fine.
Heinlein (Robert A.) Orphans of the Sky
London, Gollancz, 1963.
First edition in book-form (preceding the US edition by a year). 8vo. Original red boards. Dust-jacket, correctly priced 13/6 and with small printed number to foot of lower panel.
The true first edition of this two-part Sci-Fi novel by US writer Heinlein. Rightly considered a classic of science fiction, and one of the key works in the ‘generation ship’ subgenre.
