Ralph 124C 41+. A Romance of the Year 2660.

Paul, Frank R. (illus.)

Boston: Stratford Co. 1925. First edition, binding A. Signed by Gernsback on the front free endpaper, with “Sincerely yours” added in a different hand. Illustrated with eleven black & white plates by Frank R. Paul. A novel of the future in which Gernsback intertwines a love story with predictions for the development of the world. Unlike his predecessors who also predicted the future in science fiction novels, Gernsback was a trained scientist who was not only one of the pioneers of television but the founder of the first pulp magazine devoted to science fiction. Ralph 124C 41+ was originally published in Modern Electrics, one of Gernsback’s magazines. Faint rubbing to edges, else fine in blue cloth with the excessively rare dust wrapper, which shows a small stain to rear panel, minor chipping to spine tips, and few short closed tears, three of which are reinforced with cello tape. Item #18531

(Barron 1-37).
