London, Methuen, 1942. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy in a very good jacket. Inscribed by the author: 'Frank Noyce from Olaf Stapledon'. Uncommon. A science fiction piece. There's a Sir Frank Noyce recorded as having worked in the Indian Civil Service and the father of Wilfrid Noyce, who was a member of the first British Everest expedition - no evidence that it was the same Noyce beyond the name. Condition: the jacket has a couple of triangular chips, a couple of tears, one to the front fold around 20mm. Rear plate a little soiled. Spine tips bumped and rubbed, some creasing. Boards a little soiled, spine faded. [8896, Hyraxia Books].
