Illustrated by Miller, Marilyn [cover]

Pale green cloth boards with gold lettering on a black background. A litle wear at corners. DJ spine sunned. Text is clean and bright. A nice copy.

Last Things represents the completion of Snow's famous Strangers and Brothers sequence, carrying the life story of Lewis Eliot into the present and bringing together the major themes from the ten preceding novels, the first of which appeared in 1940. "In a chapter of extraordinary power, Lewis Eliot, lying near death, mercilessly examines himself and his past. [Last Things centers] on the relationship between Eliot and his son Charles, who represents the new generation. Charles' friends, his love affair, his serious and dangerous involvement in radical student activity are a vital part of the story [which] comes to a climax with Charles' decision about his future and his departure into the world - into a time of protest, turmoil, and of hope."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

New York Charles Scibner's Sons 1960 First Edition Hardcover Very Good- in Good+ dust jacket 

Corners bumped, bookstore sticker inside front cover, slight darkening. Jacket has some edge wear/chipping, darkening, a couple 1" chunks gone at base of spine.

"The story revolves around a case of scientific fraud. Charged with this, a young scientist has been dismissed from his academic post; and now, with the revelation that Donald Howard may be innocent, the Affair makes a moral and political crises which splits the college from top to bottom. The case is re-opened, with Lewis Eliot in the crucial role of advocate for Howard. As the tension mounts over the Affair, C.P. Snow pins down the issues; he writes a study in justice. His novel is particularly rich in personalities, and it has a strong vein of comedy, in the person and activity of M. L. Gay, the ninety-six-year-old Islandic scholar who shakes the college in his own startling way."; 7" - 9" Tall
