Etidorhpa Extended Edition: New Restored Chapters & Fully Illustrated

By John Uri Lloyd

The Best, most complete version of this cult classic.
First published in 1895, this work has survived as a cult book. It starts with an occult student who is surprised by a ghostly, uninvited guest, who came to unveil his past as a member of a secret society which he betrayed; his punishment for this? A journey inside the hollow earth, to slowly abandon his humanity and to be a keeper of knowledge and something else… A journey to ETIDORHPA.
To say this is an early science fiction narrative wouldn’t be enough, to add that this is a fantastic story about an initiate’s journey to the earth’s interior, a compendium of scientific hypothesis that goes from geology to metaphysics, an illustration of the miseries and hopes of men; that would, at least, be a better example to describe this singular work, inasmuch as this great narration contains multiple layers of interpretation.
This Extended Edition includes:

  • Three extra chapters from a 1901 edition (not found on other modern reprints!)
  • Five pages of an incomplete Etidorhpa sequel by John Uri Lloyd.
  • Fully illustrated. 65B&W illustrations. Including all illustrations from previous editions
