London, Cassell, 1937-1939. First Edition. First Impression. Lost Race. Locke notes that there are 14 short stories in the first volume covering adventures in Africa. One of the stories, 'The Great Quest', is about a hidden Quaker community which he classifies as Lost Race. The second volume is much more clearly a lost race work covering "a race of Amazons, complete with a resident monster and a queen". [Locke, p165]. Newton was an Irish writer of science fiction [Clute, p865]. Near fine, without jackets (we assume they were issued with jackets). Some offsetting and signs of age, but little of note. Uncommon. [Reginald, p385, for vol II only, Bleiler, p148, for vol II only - Lost race, fantastic plots, Survivals]. [5930, Hyraxia Books].
