THE INCUBATED GIRL ...
London: Tower Publishing Company Limited, 1896. The second, and scarcest, of Jane's four scientific romances. "An ancient Egyptian papyrus spells out the chemical means whereby an artificial girl can be made; the novel is basically a romance describing the life of the synthetic being who is thus created." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 122. "... the 'lost science' of ancient Egypt enables a female homunculus to be manufactured. The story is a romance, but the girl does function to some extent as an innocent observer, after the fashion of Wells's angel in THE WONDERFUL VISIT." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 130. "Overlong, with undeveloped themes and loose ends, but very imaginative and unusual." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1178. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-347 [348: printer's imprint] [349-352: ads], original decorated blue cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, front panel plain, top and bottom edges untrimmed, fore-edges rough trimmed. First edition, second binding. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 444. Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 112. Bleiler (1978), p. 109. Reginald 07834. Cloth lightly rubbed at spine ends, corner tips rubbed, touch of foxing to endpapers, a bright, tight, very good copy. Superior condition for this book. (#101364)
