A VOYAGE FROM UTOPIA ... Edited with an Introduction by M. F. Lloyd-Prichard. London: Lawrence and Wishart Ltd, 1957. Octavo, boards. First edition. "Reversing the usual procedure, Bray has a visitor from utopia tour England and America, offering a satirical commentary on their socioeconomic systems and leaving the outlines of his socialist utopia largely to inference. This novel, completed in 1842, remained unpublished for more than 100 years, but anticipates [William Dean] Howells's famous visitor from Altruria (1894) by half a century." - Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1-27.
