Etidorpha Or The End Of Earth By John U. Lloyd /1901/ Illuminati /hollow Earth:
Very Rare Mead & company, 1901. Hardcover. Very Good.27 Lithograph illustrations. "In this edition chapters excluded from the former editions have been given a place, thus enlarging and making the book complete." - from the author's preface. The last entry on the copyright page is "Copyright 1901, by Dodd, Mead and Company" The title page states "Printed for the author by The Caxton Press". There is no indication that there is anything special about this book, yet the pages have the feel of vellum. Unlike the Dodd, Mead printing the covers are a patterned red cloth with black lettering on the front panel and gilt on the spine. The lower part of the illustration on page 112 has been reproduced and pasted onto the front board. The covers have light edgewear and staining to the gutters. Some of the pages have wrinkling at the top edge close to the spine (binding problem) while others are dog-eared (later human addition). Still, a very good copy of this early science fiction work
