The only work of sci-fi from an author normally associated with more sedentary works on transport; this Lost Race tale set in the Yukon Territory, 'within a caldera heated by volcanic action, a technologically advanced but priest-ridden civilization of "white Indians", originally from ancient Egypt, uses its helicopter-like airships and strange Weapons to attempt to protect its gold from the outer world.' (The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction).
First edition. 8vo. Advertisements. Original blue cloth ruled in black. Dust-jacket, correctly priced 7s.
A very good early dust-jacket, uncommon thus. This collection of tale comes from the pen of Scottish author Gerald Grogan, author of the sci-fi novel A Drop in Infinity (1915); the author was killed in the First World War, in 1918.
