ADD TO WISHLIST

London, Heinemann, 1898. First Edition, First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. A cornerstone of modern speculative fiction collecting, and literature in general. First issue (Currey's issue B [Currey p426]), 32p ads dated. Number 39 on the NPR greatest SF list. In the Locus list for best SF of all time there are only four novels listed prior to WWII, including Star Maker, The Time Machine, Frankenstein and War of the Worlds, which whilst it's easy to think of others that should be included it's hard to argue that those four shouldn't. A classic. A lovely copy, spien just a touch rubbed and marginally toned. Tips a little bumped. Overall, a superior copy. A little toning to the endpapers. [9073, Hyraxia Books].
