Date d'édition : 1895

Reliure : Soft cover

Edition : 1st Edition

Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-2] [1-4] 5-499 [500: blank], two inserted plates with illustrations by Miss Fairfax and Mrs. McAuley from drawings by the author, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, white endpapers. First edition. A later issue of the first edition with the "Arena" imprint on the spine panel and a cancel title page with Neely's imprint. This novel, the second and last of Pope's projected "Romances of the Planets" series, was first published by Arena Publishing Company in 1895. Arena issued the novel in two forms, in cloth with sixteen inserted plates, and in paper with three inserted plates. Neely acquired the Arena sheets (and some clothbound copies) and reissued them with cancel title pages. Although sixteen was the full compliment of plates for the copies bound in cloth, many of the hardbound copies issued by Arena and reissued by Neely have fewer inserted plates, generally three, but sometimes four or two. This copy has two plates, one used as the frontispiece, the other facing page 120. About 1897 Neely reprinted the novel on cheap pulp paper stock as a 25¢ paperback with two inserted plates. In Pope's sequel to JOURNEY TO MARS . (1894), the protagonist and his Martian princess visit Venus, a younger world comparable to some stage of earth's prehistory. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-127; (1981) 1-139; (1987) 1-76; and (1995) 1-76. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1806. Clareson, The Emergence of American Science Fiction: 1880-1915, pp. 202-03.
