First edition, first printing. “At first some of [the book’s] features may strike the reader as a fantastic dream, but Mr. Geddes proves their practicability. Grandma wrapped her linen duster around her neck and fearfully went out for a spin at eight dizzy miles an hour. But your grandchildren will snap across the entire continent in 24 hours on a new kind of highway and in a new kind of carthat is controlled by the push of a button!” (flap blurb). Scarce thus.

Quarto. Original light brown cloth, titles to spine and front board in brown. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs. Light foxing to endpapers and endleaves, else a bright and fresh copy in a jacket with a few tiny chips and mild rubbing to rear panel. Excellent.
