London, Gollancz, 1928. First Edition. First Impression. Lost Race. The author's third novel. A very good copy, collected primarily for the excellent jacket by E. McKnight Kauffer, though Wright in his own right was an excellent author, sadly under-appreciated nowadays. In Blieler as Lost race / Lost continent / Atlantis [p213]. "Somewhat macabre science fantasy among strange beings on an unknown Pacific island." Inspired by Wells' Moreau [Stableford, Against the New Gods, p56]. In the jacket which is complete with some toning to the spine, and a little wear but remarkably well preserved given it is currently unprotected (it will get a jacket protector shortly!). Book has a little offsetting from the jacket, and foxing to the three edges. And yes, there's a captain Sparrow, a pirate of sorts (well, there are pirates in the book (technically the descendants of pirates)), first name...Andrew (i.e. not Jack, though his son is Jacob, which could be shortened to Jack). Cover art by E, McK. Kauffer [5943, Hyraxia Books].
