ADD TO WISHLIST

London, Methuen, 1937. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A good copy. A classic of the genre, and a monumental work of fiction. Stapledon's masterpiece, 'a novel for which even the most extravagent superlatives are insufficient' [Roberts, History of Science Fiction, 2007, p170]. A fantastic, spiritual voyage. The supplied [second issue] jacket is worn to the edges and tender to the creases with some splitting. Spine tips and corners chipped. Jacket split to the spine with crude paper tape work holding it in place. Publisher's price overlay to front flap. Book itself is toned to the spine, with an owner's inscription and owner's stamp to front pastedown. A decent book in a passable jacket. Cover art by Bip Pares [7122, Hyraxia Books].
