Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-177 [178: blank], flyleaf at front, inserted frontispiece (portrait of the author), plus numerous vignette drawings throughout the text, original black cloth, front and spine panels stamped in silver. First edition. A literary miscellany that includes two interplanetary tales, "What John Smith Saw in the Moon" and "A Message from the Stars." "A potpourri of fiction, poetry, and comic illustrations. A note of social protest is to be found in some of the material . Curious ideas at times, but probably not worth a dollar when it was written. It represents a fairly common mixture of occultism, socialism, primitive science, and contemporary magazine humor." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 279. "What John Smith Saw in the Moon," pp. 5-44, was originally published in THE WORKINGMAN'S ADVOCATE. The Lunar utopia is "technologically advanced; no money" (Sargent, p. 60). The drawings, some serious, most comical, are quite accomplished and help make this a charming production. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Reginald 01965. Wright (III) 707 (no copies located). Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 41. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature 1516-1985, pp. 59-60 and p. 97. Faint damp stain on front cover, minimal loss to silver stamping, a bright, very good copy of a rare book. (#146184). N° de réf. du libraire 146184
