Dates 1884
Published London: Seeley & Co.
Description New and revised edition, with an extended preface. Original parchment dust wrapper over white card covers.
Note satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott. Writing pseudonymously as "A Square". The book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to comment on the hierarchy of Victorian culture; but the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions. In this, revised edition, Abbott answers the charges of Misogyny brought against him after the initial publication of the novel.
Bibliography xvi, 1-102 pp.
Illustrated line drawings throughout by the author.
Edition Reprint
Condition The wrapper is a little darkened and has several chips to the spine. The parchment is a little darkened and has light staining. Internally, the book is clean and tidy throughout, with a little foxing to the initial pages.
