London, Hurst & Blackett, 1881-1885. First edition, first impression. Hardbacks. A good set only. Verge is the sequel to Ivy. Locke speculates that the pieces may be a near-future war story, but it's difficult to tell. An uncommon work overall. Greg is best known for his Martian voyage tale Across the Zodiac. Good only. Ex-library copies with stickers to the upper boards of five volumes and stamps to the halftitles of Verge. Spine lean, some bumping and softening to the tips and corners. Some separation to the blocks, which are a little loose. [10079, Hyraxia Books].
