A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [1] 2-246, six inserted plates with illustrations by A. Twidle, original pictorial red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in brown, black and silver, rear panel stamped in black. First edition. Boys' lost race adventure novel indebted to Verne and the literature of Arabian travel, especially Palgrave's NARRATIVE OF A YEAR'S JOURNEY THROUGH CENTRAL AND EASTERN ARABIA, 1862-63 (1865). The protagonists seek a lost friend in the "Antelope," a gas-driven vehicle with electric headlights. Their quest leads them across the desert to an isolated oasis where they find the ruins of a great city inhabited by a Baal-worshiping people of Phoenician descent. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 44 and Spectrum III, p. 164. Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 61. Bleiler (1978), p. 71. Reginald 05246. Binding slightly leaned, cloth a bit spotted, spine panel a bit sunned, endpapers foxed, tissue guard torn and foxed, with some offset onto title page, a good copy. The scarcest but least interesting of Fawcett's three science fiction novels. (#148226). N° de réf. du libraire 148226
