The first edition of this uncommon work.
A unique science fiction novel by American author Clement Fezandie.
Illustrated with a frontispiece, and fourteen plates.
'Through the Earth' sees an underground train built going straight from New York to Australia. A fantastic idea on conception, the train melts from the Earth's core and must be abandoned.
