More Information
Robert A Heinlein, born 1907 to 1988, was a very influential and ground-breaking science fiction writer. Small wonder then that his work is keenly sought by collectors. Early first editions now attract quite high prices. Later books are relatively easy to source and therefore very reasonably priced. The American editions precede the British books,  except where stated. There are also some signed limited American editions.
If you are looking to buy or sell rare books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
