London, Henry Colburn, 1828. Second Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Three [3] volumes, complete. An important book in the speculative canon, preceded by a year by the first edition. An early Science fiction novel, and one of the first prototype works wherein the action takes place in a posited future which is markedly different from her present in more ways than simply political / ideological. Like Shelley a decade before, Webb as she was then was a teenager upon writing the book (Frankie was clearly an influence given the use of galvanism for the reincarnation as opposed to magic ritual). Considering the journey SF has taken, it's remarkable that two of the paramount early works were written by teenage girls. Condition: the binding is dry and flaky. Large chip to the bottom corner of volume one. Bindings still tight but all worn along the hinges. Corners a little worn too, foreedges have a few chips. Some pencil notes from previous sellers and a couple of spots but largely nicely preserved internally. [Clute, SFE]. [8885, Hyraxia Books].
