First edition. Faustian science fiction. A brilliant scientist's offer of marriage is rejected by the woman he loves because she fears the consequences of his possible success in discovering the secret of eternal life. The rebuffed scientist continues his experiments, discovers and synthesizes the essential fluids of the human brain, and constructs clockwork androids, using the brain fluid to give them artificial intelligence. But the androids have no souls and the double of the scientist's girl friend ("as perfect a companion, as a man ever had -- provided he wound her up") cannot love him. He destroys the androids and wins the hand of the human Rosamond. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Reginald (1979; 1992), or Day (1963). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 M-658. A very good copy. A nice copy of a very imaginative and quite uncommon book. (#107052). N° de réf. du libraire 107052
