Abstract: The first search for primeval galaxies at redshifts lower than 2 is reported. An area of 0.1 sq deg has been searched for emission line objects at 3500 A; none have been found down to a threshold of 2.7 exp -17 erg/sq cm/s/sq arcsec (1sigma). From this limit constraints have been placed on the formation of galaxies at redshifts 1.8 or greater. The resultant constraints are marginally in conflict with models for the formation of galaxies in universes dominated by cold dark matter.
