Geek Gift Books: “The Door Into Summer” Robt. A. Heinlein hardcover first book club edition w/ jacket 1957 Gifts for Him
BUY THIS AWESOME VINTAGE SCIENCE FICTION CLASSIC TODAY ON ETSY!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
This copy of a classic Robert Heinlein novel is near fine. The text block edges are clean, the corners are unbumped with bottom of the spine having just the slightest bump.
The original owner’s name is carefully signed on the inside of the front endpaper in blue ink, no other writing apparent. Binding is tight and square.
The book contains a glossy four page insert “newsletter” to club members dated “March and April 1958”. I don’t think that this is the one that would have come with this book as the copyright of the book is 1957, but it may be. I could not find any information detailing when the books was shipped to book club members – so I cannot be sure. In any case, it is a nice little addition to an already historic sci fi novel!
The matte paper jacket is in excellent condition with minor chipping/shelf wear at the corners of the spine. The spine and inside edges show varying degrees of tanning/sunning. The jacket is unclipped and has no tears or writing marks.
A most excellent collectible book!
Fun gift or addition to your library!
