Description :

Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xi [xii-xiv] 1-281 [282: blank], original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in brown, fore-edge untrimmed. First U.S. edition. One of the more important scientific romances of the 1920s, being a rewritten and retitled version of THEODORE SAVAGE: A STORY OF THE PAST OR THE FUTURE (1922). This catastrophe novel ". bitterly depicts a future war in whose aftermath the people of the UK, driven out of the cities, revert to superstitious barbarism. The ironically named protagonist lives to a great age in a small village full of savages who think of pre-collapse artifacts as obscene. Hamilton is one of the first -- and among the darkest -- of those UK novelists whose vision of things was shaped by WWI, which they saw as foretelling the end of civilization." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 537-38. "A particularly effective and chilling version of the theme that dominates British speculative fiction between the wars." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-48. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-484.
