About this Item

This book is "good only"; it's a solid enough copy for reading or study, but not of gift quality. It's seen enough use that it's also unlikely to please a discerning collector. Rear hinge has been repaired. Spine frayed and cloth weakened to edges. Corners frayed. This also appears to be a very early reprint, from the original 1911 Appleton plates. Book bears 1911 Appleton copyright to copyright page, and all four glossy, two-color plates (frontispiece included) are firmly in place as in the Appleton original, but title page and spine identify publisher as "The New York Book Company," and pictorial image to front board is stamped in red-and-black to beige or khaki cloth, not green cloth as in the Appleton originals. PON to FFE in pencil dated Dec. 12, 1918. Early science fiction entry featuring a journey to Venus (monsters, ape-men, a beautiful princess, crystal mountains) in an atomic-powered spaceship. Those concerned with interplanetary decorum will be relieved to learn that in the four Howard Heath illustrations, our intrepid adventurers never remove their neckties. 298 pp. with the First Edition "(1)" to final page, just as in the true Appleton first (which we fear this is not.) Dedicated to Jules Verne. Reduced from $142. Bookseller Inventory # 003946
