A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-10 [10a-10b] 11-316 [317-318: ads], sixteen inserted plates with illustrations by A. Forestier, original decorated red cloth, front panel stamped in pink, green and gold, spine panel stamped in gold, edges of text block untrimmed, black coated endpapers. First edition. A techno-thriller in which a renegade Englishman helps the French build a channel tunnel to invade England. One man, who has accidentally discovered the plot while on holiday in France, attempts to thwart the invasion but is considered a lunatic or an alarmist by the British authorities. An early spy novel in the tradition of Childers' THE RIDDLE OF THE SANDS (1908). Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1763. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 27. Clarke, Voices Prophesying War (1992), p. 105 and p. 231. Bleiler (1978), p. 156. Reginald 11285. A bright, nearly fine copy in a later nearly fine pictorial dust jacket (the rear panel advertises "new fiction" from 1918) with touch of wear at edges and just a bit of general dust soiling. A very nice copy of an attractive, uncommon book. (#152596). N° de réf. du libraire 152596
