London, Routledge, 1924. First Edition. First Impression. Lost Race. A mechanized island, Sarragalla, where efficiency of work is prioritised and citizens have become willing workers. "each [island] illustrates different principles [of society]" [Locke, p162]. Locke has it as a Utopia, Claeys suggests it's a dystopia [p335]; indicative of the thin line between the two. In Bleiler under Lost Race and Supermen [p144] Originally published in German, translated here by H.J. Stenning. Very good in paper covered boards in red. Locke and Currey both mention copies in blue cloth, such as this. As of writing we also have a variant in red paper-covered boards; no precedence established. Small library stamp to title page, larger stamps to recto, pencil indentations to the endpaper, small stamp to final page, endpapers toned, some leaves pushed at edge. [5928, Hyraxia Books].
