London, John Long, 1905. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. A pseudonym for Florence Ethel Mills. A near future story involving a fertility drug that basically gets rid of men (except one it seems), wherein women reproduce by parthenogenesis. A utopian novel. Not the first book to posit an all-female society; Mizora precedes by some margin. That said, it does precede Herland (that said, so do a few others in the vein). Six copies located in libraries. None located in commerce. Cloth a little stained, some toning to the spine, the front endpaper is pretty much detached. Some foxing. Bumping to the tips. A little loose. Bleiler [Early, 956]. [9642, Hyraxia Books].
