A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [iii-iv] v-vi [vii-viii] [1] 2-177 [178: blank] [note: text complete; title leaf is conjugate with first leaf of "preface" (pages v-vi)], original pictorial red cloth, front panel stamped in silver and black, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in brown. First edition. Jones designs and constructs a flying aluminum globe and his expedition ultimately reaches the North Pole. Includes considerable political and social theorizing. "Eccentric novel. It uses the fictional techniques of Jules Verne and Frank Stockton, but its prime purpose seems to be propaganda for an extreme version of homeopathic medicine and Fundamentalist religiosity . A curiosity, and an irresponsible one at that." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 410. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-41 and (1981) 1-40. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 152. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, Additions. Bleiler (1978), p. 42. Reginald 02871. Wright (III) 988. Lower front corner tip worn, spine panel spotted, verso of title leaf and blank recto of last leaf darkened (offset from endpapers), a sound, good copy. Handsome book with nice illustration on the front cover of the airship, the "Silver Cloud," flying above the north polar sea. (#147125). N° de réf. du libraire 147125
