An excellent copy of a 'future war' classic. An exceptional first edition of this intriguing work of science fiction, categorised by Bleiler under 'imaginary wars and inventions' (the work anticipates a 'second world war' and the importance of communications technology, including the coding, decoding, transmission & interception of messages). Alexander Forbes was a Harvard physiologist who contributed considerably to the fields of physiology and neuroscience in the 20th century.

First edition, first printing; 8vo; 4 plates by Heman Fay, Jr.; original blue cloth titled in red, near-fine, in the original pictorial dust-jacket, in remarkable condition.
