The First Men in the Moon
London: George Newnes, 1901., 1901. FIRST EDITION, in the first of three binding states. Octavo, pp.(vii); 342. Illustrated with 12 monochrome plates. Publisher's dark blue cloth with gilt decoration, black endpapers (followed by white endpapers, then third binding of lighter clue cloth). Internally clean. A few marks to cloth covers and endpapers, one or two bumps but generally tight, backstrip a shade darkened. Very good indeed. A brilliant scientist who accidentally produces a gravity-defying substance and builds a spaceship, and with the materialistic Bedford, they travel to the moon. With oposing expectations, the two must unite as they encounter the biologically engineered Selenites who will viciously defend their home. Geoffrey H. Wells [18]. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [342]. Shorter New Cambridge Bibliography (Eng.Lit.) 1293-8. See also Haining; H.G.Wells' Scrapbook.
