Edition: First printing.
London: Boriswood, 1934. Hardcover first edition - Uncommon first edition of this important feminist work of speculative fiction, in which a Genuine Person is hurtled back from thousands of years in the future into the troubled world of England in the 30s. Although favorably reviewed at the time (Edwin Muir called the first chapter of this novel, a 'brilliant piece of work'), Burdekin's works (which were published under the pseudonym of Murray Constantine) were almost forgotten until the Feminist Press began to re-issue them in the United States.
Condition: Good only in blue cloth with some fading and rubbing to the lettering on the spine, slight spine slant, previous owner's name - but still a reasonably copy of a hard to find book.
