Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii [9-11] 12-287 [288: blank] + 16-page publisher's catalogue dated "January 1921" inserted at rear, original blue cloth, front panel ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in black. First edition in English. Translation of LES TROIS YEUX (1919). Criminals steal a remarkable invention, a chemical coating, which when applied to a wall serving as a screen, can produce the most extraordinary sequences of images. The images are later revealed to be motion pictures of Earth's past history broadcast by Venusians who are using this means to communicate with us. Unfortunately the formula is lost. "An attempt to give the contemporary crime thriller an element of science-fiction . As mystery, too loosely constructed. The Arsene Lupin stories are better." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1298. Bleiler (1978), p. 120. Reginald 08757. Not in Hubin (1994). A clean, tight, very good copy. This edition is uncommon. (#95270). N° de réf. du libraire 95270
