London, John Long, 1907. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Quite uncommon. A future war novel, featuring two scientists. One of the mad variety because he uses his inventions for evil. John Clute's SFE synopsis is best: "two Scientists - one a Mad Scientist who uses his Inventions for evil, the other an ethical Superman figure - oppose one another, as the mad one devises a brain serum that supplies him, vampirically, with mental energy sufficient for him to become the Emperor of America. In the end, after Britain's initial defeat in her attempted Invasion of America, and much warfare Under the Sea, the good scientist is influential in the victory of the good in the open air." Some bumping to the corners and spine tips, owner's name to the front endpaper and a gift stamp / inscription from The Competitors' Journal. Foxing to the foreedge. John F. MacPherson (1873-1939) was born in Melbourne, but spent most of his life in the UK it seems. The F stands for Fetherstonhaugh, so now you know. [11464, Hyraxia Books].
