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 spine tips are chipped. The jacket is otherwise largely complete with some wear to the fore corners and a few spots and marks. Browned as always. Front hinge pulled though still pretty tight. Fore-edge rough cut with some associated wear. A decent enough copy and an important book in the canon. [7213, Hyraxia Books].
