New York, F. Tennyson Neely, 1898. First Edition. First Impression. Paperback. A near fine copy. In the original wraps. Uncommon. An important rarity in the early development of the genre. Dail is also known for his earlier Willmoth the Wanderer [1890]. Covers both immortality and Atlantis. [Bleiler p55; Clute p255, Reginald p131]. No copies showing for sale or at auction. Only two located on WorldCat at the HRC and LoC. Some splitting to the upper hinge, a little toning and some creasing to the spine. This is clearly the US issue given the US ads on the lower wrap and internally, but there appears to have been no British issue, though the publisher operated in both markets. No copies on COPAC. Presented in a white, slightly soiled, clamshell. Cover art by T. Di Felice [8498, Hyraxia Books].
