New York, Financial Guardian Publishing Co., 1927. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Inscribed by the author to the front free endpaper. An sf with future war elements presaging, to whatever extent is realistic, the Great Depression and WWII. The author was a financial investor and baptist, and as such elements of Christianity and perhaps even a hidden code of sorts are included (the solution to which remains elusive; or Warren Buffet got it). The jacket is a nice example with some rubbing to the edges, and a little bumping and nibbling to the spine tips. Page block is a touch dusty and toned, but a pleasing copy overall.
