Quite attractive and scarce first edition of this stand-alone juvenile fiction from this prolific author known for boys series books. Claudy (1879-1957) was an interesting figure who authored not only sci-fi but also works on aviation, freemasonry, photography (of which he was a noteworthy practitioner) and other topics. Nice copy of a seldom seen title.
