IN PART: "The drought had lasted for ten million years...Here on the Equator, in the continent which would one day b known as Africa, the battle for existence...the man-apes of the veldt...down the road to extinction...It was always hungry, and now it was starving...The two babies were already whimpering for food, but became silent when Moon-Watcher snarled at them...stood upright--the only animal in all this world able to do so...his head was already much nearer to man than ape...As he looked out upon the hostile world of the Pleistocene, there was already something in his gaze beyond the capacity of any ape." Clark has boldly signed this incredible content typescript. In fine condition.
