London, Seeley & Co., 1884. First Edition. First Impression. Paperback. A good copy. An adventure set mostly in a literally two-dimensional world. A challenging book to write no doubt, but, other than the misogyny, a great read. Cawthorn and Moorcock rank it as one of their 100 best fantasy books (to 1988) [Cawthorn & Moorcock, p34]. Condition: jacket in very nice shape but very toned over the years, corners bumped, chipped and worn. A defective copy with eight pages having not been printed (i.e. left blank) - no indication that this is an issue point. [8576, Hyraxia Books].
