AT THE BACK OF THE MOON; OR, OBSERVATIONS OF LUNAR PHASES. By A. Lunar Wray [pseudonym]. Boston: Lee and Shepard, Publishers. New York: Charles T. Dillingham, 1879. Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-130, flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated gray cloth, front panel stamped in black, rear panel stamped in blind, yellow endpapers. First edition. Long narrative poem of a visit to Earth by Lunarian explorers who observe human society for a month and then return to the Moon with a visitor from America to compare and contrast the politics and religion of the two nations. Earth does not know the Moon is inhabited because the Lunarians live on the dark side of the Moon; travel between Earth and Moon is by sailing the "moon-path;" all is a dream. Cloth worn at spine ends and corner tips, small stain on front cover, a very good copy. (#171667).

Price: $150.00
