London, A.C. Fifield, 1910. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. A fairly important entry to the genre involving the invention of a substance that makes the dead visible. This discovery escalates outward to the uncovering of a polar city populated with dead people. A lost race of sorts. Upward (1863-1926) is mostly forgotten nowadays, and barely made an impact whilst still alive, though he was published in Ezra Pound's first imageist publication. A little bumping to the spine tips, top edge a touch dusty, collector's bookplate to the front pastedown, 16pp catalogue to the rear dated March 1910. [11371, Hyraxia Books].
