London, Seeley & Co., 1884. First Edition. First Impression. Paperback. A decent copy of an uncommon early work of speculative fiction. An adventure set mostly in a literally two-dimensional world. A challenging book to write no doubt, but, other than the mysogony, a great read. Cawthorn and Moorcock rank it as one of their 100 best fantasy books (to 1988) [Cawthorn & Moorcock, p34]. The present copy's main flaw is that the title has been written in marker on the otherwise unadorned spine. The jacket is largely complete with some chipping to the spine tips. Browned as always. Front hinge pulled though still pretty tight. Some foxing to the wrappers internally. Otherwise, just general wear. On the front endpaper is written "E Abbott \ Late Head Master City London School." Given the phrasing and lack of comparisons, we reluctantly assume that this is just an owner's note designating the author's name (A Square being a pseudonym) and sadly, not the author's hand. A decent enough copy and an important book in the canon. [6496, Hyraxia Books].
