Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Aage Marcus from Olaf Stapledon, April 1946". Aage Marcus (1888-1985) was a Danish art historian and writer. The Stapledon collection at the University of Liverpool contains a copy of Marcus's Billedkunsten (Visual Art) inscribed to Stapledon and dated April 1946, suggesting that the two books were gifted concurrently. Stapledon presentation copies are extremely rare, and this is one of only two copies that we have ever seen in commerce.
