London, Methuen, 1946. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Inscribed by the author: 'E.V. Rieu from Olaf Stapledon'. Rieu was a poet, and helped created the Penguin Classics series. One of 3475 copies (Bleiler). A look at life after death, bordering on science fiction, but more fantastical. A bit of nibbling to the spine tips and a little tanning there also. Top edge a touch dusty. Some tape repairs to the jacket reverse. [10086, Hyraxia Books].
