London, J.M. Dent, 1937. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Inscribed by the author to the front endpaper as Lamb. A disaster novel morphing into a last man novel which finds two siblings as the only people left able to procreate (Jameson's parents were step siblings), but most importantly they reside atop a mountain in an otherwise flooded world, in Yorkshire (Jameson was born in Whitby). A little tanning to the spine and a few nicks here and there. Price-clipped (two corners clipped on the front flap, none to the rear). Illustrations by John Farleigh [10935, Hyraxia Books].
