London, Heinemann, 1896. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. A milestone in the development of the genre and a highlight in sceince fiction collecting. The first issue, with the publisher's monogram in blind to lower board. Currey's State B1 (No priority, 32pp [16 leaves] ads bound in starting with The Manxman and ending with Out of Due Season, preceded by a separate ad for the Time Machine on the final leaf). A slight lean, some bumping to the spine tips and a little dulled, but largely better than usually seen. Previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown. [8828, Hyraxia Books].
