The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag

by Heinlein, Robert A

Condition: See description

Hicksville, NY: Gnome Press, 1959. First edition. Inscription of publisher, Martin Greenberg, on front paste-down identifies this as the publisher's file copy. Gnome Press, though short-lived, was responsible for the publication of many significant works in the Golden Age of science fiction. Their output included Arthur C. Clarke's The Sands of Mars and Against the Fall of Night, Isaac Asimov's I Robot, and Clifford M. Simak's City. This present volume offers a collection of six of Heinlein's short stories, which embody Heinlein's knack for scientific, imaginative, and morally challenging storytelling. Bound in gray cloth with original dust wrapper. Text block tanned, as is usual for Gnome Press books, with a bit splaying to the boards and scant wear to edges of boards and dust wrapper, else fine.
