London, Sampson Low, Marston & Co., 1891. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Preceded by the US first edition of 1890. An important American dystopia; or utopia to some extent; or even a utopia collapsing to dystopia. Set in the year 1988 the story involves a trip to a New York city replete with technological wonders only to find a descent into the brutality of the oligarchies. Pretty standard stuff. A few markings to the covers. Some bumping to the spine tips and a few markings to the first few leaves. A nice copy. [10732, Hyraxia Books].
