THE HAMPDENSHIRE WONDER. Signed By The Author
Sidgwick & Jackson, Ltd, London 1911 - This rarity of science fiction is signed by the author. One of the first novels to involve a Wunderkind. The child in it, Victor Stott, is the son of a famous cricket player. This origin is perhaps a reference to H.G. Well's father Joseph Wells. The novel concerns his progress from infant to almost preternaturally brilliant child. Victor Stott is subtly deformed to allow for his powerful brain. Bound in the preferred dark green boards with bold gilt spine lettering. Author's second novel. A very good plus to near fine book with the original dust jacket, also near fine with shallow chipping at spine crown. A very bright example of this rare jacket [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Ed Smith Books, ABAA]
