Description :

Octavo, pp. [i-vii] viii-ix [x-xii] 1-229 [230: blank] [231-232: ads], original blue pebbled cloth, front panel ruled in black, spine panel lettered in gold and ruled in black, all edges untrimmed, dark gray coated endpapers. First edition, first binding. The second of Lach-Szyrma's three works of interplanetary fiction, preceded by ALERIEL; A VOYAGE TO OTHER WORLDS, published in London by Wyman & Sons in 1883 (which was a revised and expanded version of his A VOICE FROM ANOTHER WORLD, published in London by James Parker & Co. in 1874). Lach-Szyrma's ALERIEL provides an account of "communication with a Venusian who has spent some time incognito on Earth and a description of a utopian civilization on Venus obtained through a vision . [and describes] the adventures of some Venusians as they explore a civilized Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and some of their satellites" (Locke, Spectrum, p. 131). Later adventures of the Venusians are detailed in "Letters from the Planets," a series of nine stories by Lach-Szyrma published anonymously in CASSELL'S MAGAZINE from 1887 to 1893, and his novel, UNDER OTHER CONDITIONS, first published as book in 1892, but previously published in the WESTERN MAGAZINE AND PORTFOLIO (date unknown). UNDER OTHER CONDITIONS relates the adventures on earth of Ezariel, a Venusian, masquerading as an earthman. It is "the best of the series, though still somewhat feeble." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1263. "The general point of [ALERIEL] and the succeeding stories is acceptance, on a religious basis, of the plurality of worlds and the omnipresence of humanoid life" (Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years, p. 417). "These rather preachy stories concentrate on sightseeing and ethics, but fair-mindedly stress that other planetary conditions may lead to other customs. Lach-Szyrma could be considered a minor forerunner to C. S. Lewis." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. [684]. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 131. Locke, Voyages in Space 121. Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 49. Bleiler (1978), p. 117. Reginald 08513. Cloth lightly worn at spine ends and corner tips and a bit rubbed along outer joints, small spot of patchy fading to front panel, inner hinges partially cracked, but firm, a very good copy. A very elusive book in any condition. (#149893). N° de réf. du libraire
