"Something was out to get him! After that firewalking gig in Polynesia, the whole world was suddenly changed around him.

Then there was an impossible iceberg that wrecked the ship in the tropics. Rescued by a Royal Mexican plane, they were hit by a double earthquake. From then on, as changed world followed changed world, things went from bad to worse. To Alex, all the signs increasingly pointed to Armageddon and the Day of Judgment. And Margrethe was a determined heathen. Somehow he had to bring her to a state of grace, for Heaven would be no paradise without her. But time was growing short. Somewhere, there had to be a solution to it al. And, of course, there was. But it was truly a Hell of a solution."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

"Members of the Families were ordinary human beings, no different from neighboring Smiths or Browns, except for one disturbing trait: they were extraordinarily long-lived.
"In the ultra-civilized year of 2125 A.D. this distinction was intolerable. Hounded for a secret they did not knowingly possess, the Families were forced to choose - torture and extinction by their jealous, short-lived fellow men . . . or flight from Earth on an untested starship.
"They chose the latter. But to their horror they discovered that the alien stars nourished a threat even more terrifying than the one which had taken them from Earth. "; Ex-Library; 6" - 7" Tall

8 Heinlein, Robert A. Rocket Ship Galileo
New York Charles Scribner's Sons 1947 First Edition Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
Illustrated by Voter, Thomas W.

Black cloth, 212 pp, 4 b/w full page illustrations, front board has the outline of a rocket in flight (in green) heading for the Moon in the upper right corner. First edition of Heinlein's first published book, with the Scribner's 'A' and seal on copyright page and 2 rear endpapers. 1/4" tear at top of spine, and another, nearly closed tear near the base. Spine slightly cocked, corners scuffed and bent in (especially the lower corners), minor edge wear with some rubbing and scuffing to boards. 'Science fiction' inked on front paste down, small spot on page 17/18, opposite the first illustration, otherwise text is clean and unmarked.
Front end paper has this note, in ink: 'Donated to the University of Detroit High School Library on November 9, 1951 by ----------, a student." However, there are no markings, stamps, or writing anywhere else in the book. It appears unlikely this was ever in a circulating library.

A long time science fiction classic of the first flight to the moon, this was one of Heinlein's novels written in the 40's and 50's to young adults.
"They called themselves the Galileo Club - not a bad name for a group of space-minded young men who had high hopes of putting one of their homemade rocket ships in orbit. But it wasn't until they teamed up with Doc Cargraves that their impossible dream became an incredible reality.
"Suddenly the three Earthbound youths and their mentor were hurtling through space, heading for the barren wasteland of the Moon. Or so they thought. They were totally unaware that the dark crater shadows concealed a threat beyond their wildest imaginings . . . a threat from which only a miracle could save them!"; 7" - 9" Tall
