London, John Hodges, 1886. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Seemingly a philosophical novel of sorts. Signed by the author by way of a "with the author's compliments" slip loosely laid in (possibly not the author's hand). Gift inscription in the publication year to title page. Spine a touch faded, some bumping and rubbing. [9800, Hyraxia Books].
