London, Philip Wellby, 1906. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Uncommon. Bleiler has it as extra-terrestrial, space travel and alien intelligence [p135]. Though interestingly he has it as 1905 published by Griffin, though notes that as unverified. Locke [Spectrum, I:152] notes that the Griffin edition is 1909 and a second issue. The present copy is the first issue or the first edition. "Science fiction set in the near future in which a spacecraft voyages to interstellar space. It finds the remains of a dead, advanced civilization on a planet wandering in space, visits Sirius before returning to the solar system. There it removes an asteroid from its orbit and places it in orbit round the earth as a second moon, where its tidal action causes disasters." [Locke, I:152]. Condition: Some tanning to the spine, slight lean, some tanning to the endpapers, a little foxing. [8024, Hyraxia Books].
