First U.S. edition. The author's first novel, set in a remote Irish fishing village "before the introduction of railways," "gratefully and affectionately" dedicated by Gilbert to fellow Irishman Forrest Reid by "his pupil." A young boy and his grandfather encounter strange telepathic prehistoric creatures in rural Ireland which they protect from the local villagers. "THE LANDSLIDE (1943) is a parallel-worlds fantasy of some complexity in which primeval eggs, exposed by the titular slide, begin to hatch." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 495. "A sensitive and imaginative picture of an evanescent paradise." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 81. Bleiler (1978), p. 58. Reginald 05980. Endpapers darkened along gutter margins, a near fine copy in about very good pictorial dust jacket with touch of shelf wear at edges, shallow chipping to spine ends, general age-darkening, mostly on inner surface, but with show-through on spine and rear panels, and dust soiling to rear panel.
