The dust jacket is the original and not price clipped, with a later wartime over-pricing label to the front flap, it is quite rubbed and age toned, more so to the spine, with minor nicks and short closed tears to the edges.Gloag's first published novel, Wellsian science fiction, telling of an advanced future species assessing the current state of humanity, with much reference to the tensions and fears of the 1930s, the prospect of imminent war in Europe, air raids and the end of the British Empire.
