London, Arthur Pearson, 1898. First Edition. First Impression. Lost Race. An uncommon Jepson title, his third novel. [not in Blieler. In Reginald, p646], "?an isolated country in the mountains of Asia which has been moulded over several generations by an Englishman and his heirs into a Utopian community." [Locke, vI, p123] - Damned Brits, colonising the east as usual. Doing what Roosevelt could only dream of, and creating a Utopia whilst they're at it. But hang on..."Half-ruritania, half-dystopia, the imaginary land-locked Asian country...has been ruled for generations by Englishmen." [Clute, p643]. So, where George Locke sees a Utopia, John Clute and Brian Stableford see Dystopia - all in the eye of the beholder I guess. There's only one way to find it; read it (I mean you read it, and tell me about it). Jepson was a collaborator with Arthur Machen. Jepson also wrote The Garden at No. 19 which was reprinted in 2002 by Midnight House. Decent shape with just a little wear and rubbing to the ribbed cloth. Some toning to the prelims. And an interesting stamp noting that the owner received the book for winning a short story competition (presumably around publication time). [5948, Hyraxia Books].
