London, Ward, Lock & Co., n.d. [1887 BL]. First Thus. Hardback. An uncommon book. Omnibus edition containing 'A Journey into the Interior of the Earth' and 'Five Weeks in a Balloon'. The first edition thus. COPAC locates three copies, two having the publisher as Ward, Lock and Tyler. The present copy is just Ward, Lock & Co. There's nothing to suggest that this is a later, or indeed earlier, impression or edition from the same publishing group - though this could be dated from the ads at the rear. A very good copy, some toning to the spine, bumping to the spine tips and a little soiling to the lower boards. Owner's inscription to the front pastedown. Internally quite nice.
