London, Jonathan Cape, 1928. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A fine copy. Hamilton's rehashing of her earlier Theodore Savage (1922). A future war novel. Hamilton was a writer, journalist, and feminist. With Bessie Hatton she founded the Women Writers' Suffrage League in 1908, members included Maria Belloc Lowndes and Ivy Compton-Burnett. The present title isn't an overtly feminist piece, rather it examines the outcome of near-total destruction of civilisation and its aftermath. [Bleiler - Early Years, Clute - SFE, Locke - Spectrum]. A fine copy with a little toning to the spine and a couple of minor areas of wear. A short tear (3mm) to jacket and a little bumping to the spine tips. Cover art by Ejia [8824, Hyraxia Books].
