14 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...A species of primate is discovered [in New Guinea] which fits in the margin of all our definitions of 'humanity'; it becomes the focal point of a speculative attempt to specifiy exactly what we mean -- or ought to mean -- by 'Man'." --ESF
Sylva; a novel by Vercors( Book )

39 editions published between 1961 and 2000 in 8 languages and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert Richwick, an English country gentleman, witnesses the transformation of a fox, hunted down by a pack of hounds, into a lovely creature, Sylva, whom he takes into his home as his niece. Untamed, certainly not housebroken, she is a desirable but redolent place. He confides her origins only to the nurse he hires, and to his old friends, Dr. Sullivan and his daughter, Dorothy, whom he had once loved. His attempts to domesticate her are only slowly rewarded and the Pygmalion temptation is also a trap--he falls in love with her. Sylva shows increased progress, from curiosity to awareness to self consciousness, and with the realization of her identity, there is the painful corollary--human existence is mortal. On the other hand Dorothy, perhaps because of his indifference to her, relapses into the drug world she had once frequented. He visits her, experiences with her a regression into bestiality which is of course an ironic parallel. Finally he returns to Sylva, to marry her, and the genetic betrayal at the close puts a stop to all this speculation with a certain finality... A fantasy or fable which diverts rather more than it instructs, prods and chastises, is here handled with the expected intelligence and verve. --Kirkus Reviews
