London, Cassell, 1940. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Inscribed by the author 'To Stephen Foot from John Gloag, April 1940'. Manna tells of a food that is destined to stop hunger and famine, except, of course, there's a side-effect: people become lazy and subdued. Probably a worthwhile trade off. Gloag wrote a lot of science fiction, and in some ways is a successor to Wells, if barely remembered nowadays (unlike his buddy Olaf Stapledon). Some tanning to the spine, a little chipping to the tips. Some rubbing to the jacket. A slight lean, some light offsetting to the endpapers and dusting to the top edge. Price overlay sticker to the spine. [9638, Hyraxia Books].
