Reliure : Soft cover
Octavo, pp. [1-8]  2-248, original red cloth, front cover stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold. Later edition. A collection first published in 1899 by The Century Co., reprinted as part of a uniform edition of Robertson's works called the "Autograph Edition," with Robertson's signature affixed to the recto of the leaf preceding the title leaf. Collects eleven stories including "The Battle of the Monsters," "Primordial" (according to Bleiler, "probably a source for Tarzan"), and other science fiction and fantasy tales. Robertson is best remembered now as author of the 1898 story, "Futility," which struck later readers as an uncanny premonition of the Titanic disaster in 1912. This edition, got up two years later by Robertson's friends, repeats the odd resonance between art and life, for by this time the once-successful magazine and book author was dead-broke. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1880. Bleiler (1978), p. 168. Not in Reginald. Hubin (1994), p. 689. Spine panel just a bit sunned, a nearly fine copy. (#138359).
