A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [1-4] [i-vi] vii [viii] [1] 2-303 [304-306: blank] [note: first two leaves used as front paste-down and front free endpaper; last leaf used as rear free endpaper], original purple cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. "An early ecocatastrophe story in which denitrifying bacteria inimical to plant growth run wild. The plutocrat Nordenholt creates a refuge for the chosen few in Scotland. Similar in spirit to such disaster stories as Wylie and Balmer's When Worlds Collide (1933) and Serviss's The Second Deluge (1912), it anticipates the theme of Christopher's The Death of Grass (1956)." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-24. "Although a nasty book, much more considerable than the author's detective stories, which are routine. Good characterizations, excellent detail, and an imaginative sweep." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 459. ".the most impressive great plague story of the 1920s" - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 244. Reprinted in Famous Fantastic Mysteries in 1948. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 2-18 and (1987) 2-20. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 183. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 50. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 57. Bleiler (1978), p. 47. Reginald 03310. A very good, attractive copy of this cheaply made book. (#149664). N° de réf. du libraire 149664
