London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1887. [Science Fiction] THIRD UK EDITION. Octavo (19 x 15cm), pp.viii; 272. With 44 engraved plates, including a frontispiece, by Benett. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles and black decoration to spine and upper. Front fly-leaf neatly removed. Hinges split, but holding well. Lightly toned throughout, with a gentle tobacco scent. A little light wear to cloth; spine slightly toned. Very good.
