London, George Allen & Unwin, 1932. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. Inscribed by the author. The author's first book, and first science fiction novel. Time travel and cat people, you need read no further: your decision is made. Uncommon inscribed. A nice copy, highly influenced by Wells and Stapledon - the latter with whom Gloag was close. Some wear to the spine tips and a little tanning to the spine. Slight lean. Endpapers a little foxed. Price overlay sticker on the jacket. [9643, Hyraxia Books].
