London, Hodder & Stoughton, 1916. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. A race of people descended from the ancient Egyptians is found in the Kalahari [Locke, Spectrum I:p70]. In Bleiler as lost race [p62] also [Teitler #352]. The author's first novel, a prequel of sorts to the shorter piece in his earlier collection The Secret City. Condition: Some foxing early on and to the edges, some rubbing to the edges, some light soiling to the boards. [8031, Hyraxia Books].
