London, John Ouseley, n.d. [1912 BL]. First Edition. First Impression. Lost Race. A satire on an ancient and imaginary civilisation [Locke, vI, p38]. The present copy, from Locke's library, is an advanced copy with a presentation inscription from the author. A newspaper clipping is pasted in, as is a typed note (probably from the author). There is a further autograph note, initialled by the author, and dated 1939. Possibly an author's copy, though not, we think, one of the two copies mentioned in spectrum as the description doesn't quite match. In Blieler, as allegory / symbolism [p28]. COPAC located four copies. Near fine with owner's ex-libris stamp to title page, boards a little worn. An interesting copy. [5942, Hyraxia Books].
