The Invisible Man. A Grotesque Romance.
C. Arthur Pearson, London, 1897, 8vo., pp. (viii) 246 2 adverts. Finely bound in full burgundy oasis, gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, gilt titles within blind stamped border to upper. Top edge gilt and original cover bound in at rear. A very good copy in fine recent binding. First Edition. A commentary on the misuse of science for selfish ends. Completely unbelievable in the light of what we now know; any man made miraculously invisible would occupy his entire time with spying on naked people, staying in pubs after they'd closed and tracking down people who were mean to him in school and making their lives a misery. And spying on naked people. Geoffrey H. Wells [11]. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [279]. Shorter New Cambridge Bibliography (Eng.Lit.) 1293-8.
