ADD TO WISHLIST

London, Heinemann, 1898. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. A cornerstone of modern speculative fiction collecting, and literature in general. First issue (Currey's priority A [Currey p426]), sixteen pages of ads dated Autumn 1897. Number 39 on the NPR greatest SF list. In the Locus list for best SF of all time there are only four novels listed prior to WWII, including Star Maker, The Time Machine, Frankenstein and War of the Worlds, which whilst it's easy to think of others that should be included it's hard to argue that those four shouldn't. A classic. Spine toned, edges a touch rubbed and a little tired. Front endpaper absent. Front hinge tight, but paper separating, owner's name to pastedown, a little foxing. Internally prettey good with just a few spots. [7326, Hyraxia Books].
