"Genus Homo" was first published in SUPER SCIENCE STORIES in 1941 and published in book form in 1950 by Fantasy Press. Humans awake in the far future on Earth where mankind is extinct. "A combination of allegory, satire and clever extrapolation that descends into space opera ... At its best, similar to GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, Stewart's EARTH ABIDES, and Boulle's PLANET OF THE APES." - Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 3-133. The typescript is bound in blue cloth with gold lettering on front cover. Stains and mildew marks on binding and first and last few leaves, but very good overall. (#73256).
