Last Man - 96 edition

Last Man (ISBN10: 1551110768; ISBN13: 9781551110769)
ISBN13: 978-1551110769
ISBN10: 1551110768

It is a novel that rival's Frankenstein in the rich profusion of ideas it gives rise to in the reader.

Appendices include a map of Lionel Verney's world, literatur
e on the theme of The Last Man, background to the Sibyl's cave, historical and literary accounts of the plague, excerpts from Mary Shelley's poetry, Godwin, Malthus, Wollstonecraft, Burke, PB Shelley, Rambles in Germany and Italy, and reviews.
