Description

George McIver's Neuroomia: A New Continent was first published by George Robertson & Co. in London, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane in 1894. Neuroomia tells the imaginary voyage of Captain Montague Periwinkle from Australia to Antarctica, where a technologically advanced lost civilisation is discovered at the South Pole. Chapter VIII, "Visions of Another World," describes another utopian society on Mars. McIver was born in Scotland but lived most of his life in New South Wales.

This yellow-back edition appears to have been published around 1894, being from the same publisher and using the same stereotype plates. Yellow-backs were cheap books printed in Britain in the late-nineteenth century and aimed at a popular audience, and George Robertson published numerous book by Australian authors such as McIver.
