London Faber & Faber 2002 0571178790 / 9780571178797 First Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine Octavo 
278 pp. Light wrinkling to upper edges of unclipped dustjacket. Faint yellowing to edges of text block and outer page margins. (Paper is cream-coloured, so the extra yellowing is not very noticeable.) Black-and-white plates. "Looks at humanity's age-old obsession with moviung dolls and speaking robots, intelligent machines and bionic men. It tells the remarkable story of how inventors and magicians laboured for centuries to simulate life mechanically. Taking up a theme long familiar from the realms of fairytale and science fiction, Gaby Wood unearths the hidden pre-history of a modern idea."
