About this Item

Uncommon review copy with original letter from GP Putnam Publicity Director dated 8/21/64 extolling the book, and a seperate insert dated 9/23/64. Book would be fine except for a bump on the top of one board and slight softening to top spine tips. Very slight discoloring to inside FEP. Gold gilt bright and intact on spine and cover. Pages are clean and white and crisp, as is the binding. Dust jacket has light edgewear and a 3/4" closed tear to front top. A very nice copy of this book. Not price clipped, shows $4.95 on inside flap. Heinlein's grimmest book by far. Written near the heighth of the atomic war fear. Farnham builds a fallout shelter and when the alarms go off the family and a friend hide in the shelter, seal it, and feel a strange distortion and the solid concrete shelter slides DOWN. When they open the hatch, it's resting on a hillside thousands of years in the future. White people are all slaves or Aborigenes. Black people rule small underground kingdoms where hydroponics supply the only available food, they are intelligent, elegant, high tech, and cannibals. Farnham survives, finds romance, and even a sympathetic Ruler who sends him back in time with his mate rather then eat him. Bookseller Inventory # 005471
