KUPPORD, SKELTON [SIR JOHN ADAMS]. - A Fortune from the Sky.
London, Nelson 1903. Octavo illustrated green cloth; frontispiece and extra illustrated title. Front endpaper cracked along the hinge, the occasional spot or smudge but quite a decent copy. ¶ First and probably only edition of this quite readable, pacy and sometimes sardonic thriller involving an out of control death ray and (apropos of the title) a machine that could write advertising across the sky in flaming letters. Britain, finally gaining control of the death ray, decides that the knowledge and power of the machine is not to be trusted to a world council.AUD 65.00 [Appr.: EURO 46 US$ 49.67 | £UK 40.25 | JP¥ 5520] Book number 7336
