London, Michael Joseph, 1956. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine copy. An important apocalyptic work, and the author's best known. Grasses and grains fail, and the world turns pretty crap. A cosy catastrophe of the era, though perhaps not as cosy as some of its contemporaries. In Pringle's Top 100 SF. [Aldiss, Trillion, p281; Roberts, History, p210; Pringle, 100, p61]. Published in the same year in hardback in Canada, and the following year under the title No Blade of Grass, in the US. Cover art by Trevor Denning [7905, Hyraxia Books].
