London, Hutchinson, 1898. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Presumed first issue. Lloyd Currey notes as second issue with a cancel leaf dated 1899 instead of 1898. The present copy has the title leaf dated 1898. An uncommon book. A lost race novel with Atlantis set in the Sargasso Sea [Locke, Spectrum Vol I, p25]. The book is near fine with some scuffs to the upper board and a little bumping to the spine tips. Eight plates by D. Murray Smith as called for. A very nice copy of a rare item. [6387, Hyraxia Books].
