London, George G. Harrap, 1931. Proof. Paperback. A very good copy. Uncorrected proof copy of the first edition. Rare in this form. The proof differs from the published version in several aspects, here the author?s name is printed as Ruth Falconer, the publication date is given as 1930; the running head on the first two signatures is ?The Simian Maid? ( on later signatures ?Dream?) and the textual differences to at least two pages in which the published version has been shortened. The dustwrapper is identical to that of the published version, albeit trimmed to fit the proof. A science fiction time travel novel in which three contemporary characters are transported back a million years in a dream. Some rubbing and creasing to the extremities. Block edges are somewhat spotted. Jacket rubbed, nicked and toned, with a couple of short closed tears and some dust marks. [11012, Hyraxia Books].
