London, Sidgwick & Jackson, 1911. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy in a well preserved jacket. Locke reports two variants without priority, this being variant B in dark green cloth with gilt to the spine [Spectrum I, p32]. The Hampdenshire Wonder was a huge influence on Stapledon's writing of Odd John [Crossley, p225] and a 'groundbreaking account of a superhuman child' [Luckhurst, p47; Barron, II-113; Blieler, p21 as Supermen]. An important work of science fiction. The jacket is complete with a 35mm closed tear to the rear at the spine. Spine and a few other areas toned. The book itself has a little spotting to the edges, and offsetting to the endpapers but is a sharp copy overall. An excellent book and a highlight of 20th century speculative fiction. Uncommon. [7834, Hyraxia Books].
