The loathsome remnant of these troglodytes dwell in huge caverns under the island where they prey upon unwary travelers who stray into or near their cavernous abodes. "One of the few lost race novels focusing on the Persians. A bit better than the usual boys book." - Leon Gammell. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 180. Reginald 11985. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Slight spine lean, several very faint spots to rear cover, a bright, nearly fine copy. An uncommon book. (#147139). N° de réf. du libraire 147139
