400 g; 192 pages, in original dark brown cloth covered boards, with very slight rubbing to the bottom of the spine section, and darkening of the top edge of the text block. The dust jacket is rubbed, with minor chipping, and splitting at the fold over creases. This is the author's first book, and interestingly I could not find it referenced in the Encyclopaedia of science fiction, or fantasy. Invent a pill, which when taken, cause a whitening of the skin. Now watch the bigots react, devising so-called "true colour charts" that can identify a Negro, whatever his apparent colour. -- sounds like various programmes in history that could identify people of certain religions, ethnicity, or sexuality. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1. Category: Science Fiction & Fantasy; Fiction -- Satire; Inventory No: 0221086.
