Notes

First edition, first impression. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "With all sincere regards to my Cincinnati friends - Mr & Mrs Robert H Smith. July 22 1929 Paul Creswick". A rare fantasy about an antediluvian paradise arising from the subsiding ocean and proving eventually to be Atlantis. The jacket art is spectacular. Copac locates copies at just four British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Scotland, Oxford, Trinity College Dublin), OCLC adding just a further five (Yale, Tulane, Miami,. Harry Ransom, Brigham Young).
