London, A. Wenman, 1791. Later Edition. A lovely edition of one of the most important taproot texts for modern speculative fiction. The novel is the first book featured in Cawthorn and Moorcock's (but really just Cawthorn's) Fantasy: 100 Best Books. Though not explicitly noted as being the first important text (it's not), it's clear that Cawthorn placed it high in the proceedings [p11]. A stunning work of imagination, bolstered by the deeper satire. Dimensions: 90x135x20mm. Bound in full calf, with delicate gilt work. Marbled edges. A pleasing little volume, rubbed and bumped at the spine tip. Four parts in three volumes, bound as one. Frontispiece to volume one (labelled for volume three, so perhaps there were three frontispieces originally). vi, 7-102,112,110. COPAC records no copies for this book, but two copies located for 1780 edition by the same publisher. [5959, Hyraxia Books].
