“A novel which ranks with BRAVE NEW WORLD and NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR as outstanding political satire but with perhaps more humour is THE LUNATIC REPUBLIC (1959). For the version of English spoken by the inhabitants of Lunamania on the far side of the moon, Mackenzie invented over 150 new words.” Wikipedia.

Clean blue cloth hardcover boards with gilt title lettering on spine. The dust jacket is clipped, with several small tears. Spotting on the back of the dust jacket.
