London, Duckworth, 1932. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Near fine. Inscribed by Holden 'To Mummie with best love from Inez, March, 1931' (the 1931 has been corrected in pencil to 1932). An excellent association copy. Interesting science fiction piece involving rejuvenation in the near future [Clute & Nicholls, SFE]. The author rented a flat from H.G. Wells. Wells subsequently evicted her when she introduced him to Orwell (Orwell had slammed Wells' naivety a few weeks earlier). Author of "Sweet Charlatan" to wrapper.. Some trivial foxing and browning the the end boards and papers. Small chip to jacket. Small stain to jacket rear. [8705, Hyraxia Books].
