Description :

Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii [viii] 1-280, original purple cloth, spine panel stamped in yellow. First edition. "MANNA is the story of an artificially created species of mushroom that will grow almost anywhere, and will provide all the nourishment that men need . As usual [with Gloag] the implications of MANNA are gently understated. and the narrative has not the vigour of THE NEW PLEASURE or WINTER'S YOUTH, but there is perhaps no other novel which sums up so neatly the paradoxical outlook which characterises scientific romance between the wars . [It] ends up offering, with unusual sobriety, yet another study of the Anatomy of Frustration." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, pp. 233-34. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 76. Gerber, Utopian Fantasy (1973), p. 154. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 92. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, pp. 219-20. Bleiler (1978), p. 83. Reginald 06040. Covers warped at fore-edges, bit of patchy fading to spine panel, very light foxing to fore and bottom edges of text block, a very good, bright copy in near fine pictorial dust jacket (printed on lavender paper stock) with touch of wear at edges and minor remnant of small label removed from spine panel. An attractive example of the uncommon jacket. (#102757). N° de réf. du libraire 102757
