London, Heinemann, 1898. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A fine copy, presents very well. A classic of science fiction and a cornerstone for any speculative fiction collection. FIRST ISSUE. 16 pages of ads to rear dated 1897 and headed by New Letters of Napoleon. Gentle pushing to the spine tips and a few signs of age on the prelims, but the boards are bright and clean, as is the text block. The spine is smooth and remains in very good shape. The finest copy of the book we've had. [6534, Hyraxia Books].
