A & C Black, London, 1927. Hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine.
22.5 x 14.5cm, 208pp. An Experiment with Time was about Dunne's precognitive dreams and a theory of time which he later called "Serialism".
The first half of the book describes a number of precognitive dreams, most of which Dunne himself had experienced. His key conclusion was that such precognitive visions foresee future personal experiences by the dreamer and not more general events. The second half develops a theory to try and explain them. Dunne's starting point is the observation that the moment of "now" is not described by science. Contemporary science described physical time as a fourth dimension and Dunne's argument led to an endless sequence of higher dimensions of time to measure our passage through the dimension below.
Accompanying each level was a higher level of consciousness. At the end of the chain was a supreme ultimate observer. This copy is in very good condition for age.
