London, George Allen & Unwin, 1944. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy, inscribed by the author and presented with an ALS to the inscribee. The inscription reads Denys Harding from Olaf Stapledon. The letter is in reply to one of Hardings and discusses Sirius, later Stapledon discusses his charming relationship with his pet dog. A short science fiction piece, only 36 pages, examining 1990 following the - at the time of writing just ending - second world war. The book is near fine with just a little rubbing to the corners, a nice copy. A little soiling to the boards. [8892, Hyraxia Books].
