THE MARVELOUS AND INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES OF CHARLES THUNDERBOLT, IN THE MOON. London: Printed and Published for the Author, by T. Gunn, Hand Court, Holborn, 1851. Octavo, pp. [i-iii] iv-v [vi] [7] 8-391 [392: blank], rebound in modern green cloth with black leather title label. First edition. "A science fantasy of wild and fantastic adventures on both the Moon and Jupiter. The hero's spacecraft is a steam-driven North Pole, but although the novel was written for children, it has much to commend it to the adult reader. Preceding ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND by more than a decade, its early chapters have some of the curious logic of that classic. It is, however, a true interplanetary with not a little thought given to the problems of space flight." - Locke, Voyages into Space 62. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 67. Locke, Voyages in Space (2011) V223. Eaton catalogue III, p. 97. Bleiler (1978), p. 59. Reginald 04070. A untrimmed copy rebound in modern cloth. A rare book. (#173054).
