Die Riesen kommen!

Front Cover
J.C.C. Bruns, 1904 - Canadian literature - 388 pages
Opposite the title page of RBR's copy, there is no advertisement; this is one of several significant differences when compared to the original edition held at Urbana. Our copy must be a later edition on cheaper and smaller paper. Greve's presentation copy was 19.5 cm, whereas ours measures 17 cm. The Urbana cover has an ornate frame, but a clear font type, our copy is bound in yellow cloth with a simple line frame, but with the rather ornate "Gothic" or "Fraktur" font type. Urbana's book displays the Bruns logo, an eagle and a nude in thinking pose, on cover & title page, ours has only a small, orchid-like design in a circle on a half-title page. The table of contents is at the back in our book, it is at the front in Urbana's, and across it, the German Dr. Moreau & Time Machine are advertised as published, while The First Men in the Moon (Newnes, 1901) & When the Sleeper Wakes (Harper, 1899) are announced as forthcoming. The illustrations by Hans Friedrich are only found in our copy.
