¶ A landmark collection of American science fiction, including the classic tale, 'The Case of Summerfield', in which a scientist invents a method of setting water on fire and holds the earth to ransom. The story "The Aztec Princess" is of lost-race interest. Facsimile reprint of the text from the original edition published by A.L. Bancroft and Company in 1876. Issued as a volume in the publisher's "Classics of Science Fiction" series. Note: Hyperion paperbacks are quality books, properly printed and bound, not cheap modern print-on-demand editions.
