Default Woohoo! Lucked out with Heinlein book...

It's a first edition of The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, in 1985!!

I bought it on Amazon, for $0.50 plus $3.99 shipping/handling.

How's that for sheer luck?

Yup.

Dark cloth spine, black cardboard front and back cover. And in darn good shape for the age it is.

Can't imagine there are too many left in decent shape - guard it well!

Dust cover?

I recently got a 1969 first edition book from Amazon for $7 and was surprised when
it showed up with a dust cover with only 1 tiny tear in it.
