London, John and Robert Maxwell, 1886. First edition, first impression. Paperback. A very good copy. A utopian piece: "A classless scientifically advance island utopia. Police are physicians who can diagnose signs and symptoms which will lead a person to commit a crime" [Locke]; prefiguring PKD's Minority Report in a way, though it's unlikely PKD knew of the book. A little lean to the spine, and some separation, some creasing. [11297, Hyraxia Books].
