RALPH 124C 41+: A ROMANCE OF THE YEAR 2660 .
Octavo, pp. [1-2] [1-8] 9-293 [294: blank], eleven inserted plates with illustrations by Frank R. Paul, original blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. Signed and inscribed by Gernsback to "my good old friend Paul Samplinger" in May 1959 on a tipped in leaf preceding the front free endpaper. Widely acclaimed upon its initial appearance as a serial in Gernsback's magazine, MODERN ELECTRICS, in 1911, the interplanetary novel by "the father of science fiction" is virtually unreadable today. However, historically, its impact and the prominence of its author in the science fiction field, elevates it to cornerstone status in the science fiction genre. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-80; (1981) 1-77; (1987) 1-37; (1995) 1-37; and (2004) II-431. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 863. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 335.
