New York, Scribners, 1932. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Subtitled: The Story of a Voyage to the Planets (which I think we got from the title). Translated from the German by Max Schachtman. An interplanetary work visiting such notable planets as Saturn, mainstay Mars and a mysterious further planet. It's a nice book, condition-wise and presentation-wise. Mader was a German science fiction writer, and the present title was first published in 1911 in German - it was the first book he had translated into English. The publishers are certainly pushing him as a new Jules Verne but according to the SFE, we're looking at more of a Haggard. A couple of short tears to the jacket and spine tips, a little dustiness to the top edge, and one short tear to the rear fold that just got about 10mm longer when I examined it. Illustrations by Robert A. Graef [9568, Hyraxia Books].
