Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First UK edition, first print hardback of THE CHILDREN OF MEN by P D James and published by Faber and Faber Limited, London in 1992. Signed by James on the title page. Full numberline: 2 4 6 8 10 9 7 5 3 1 on the copyright page.

The book is in very good condition (black cloth boards with white lettering to spine) with some light wear to the dust jacket, which is price clipped (rubbing/creasing to edges and corners, rather more noticeable to the top and bottom of the spine). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. There is the usual tanning to page edges as is common with this title.

In this astonishing novel, an entirely new departure in her writing, P. D. James imagines a future England where human infertility has spread like a plague. By the year 2021 no babies have been born for a quarter of a century, not since Year Omega, anywhere in the inhabited world.

The very old are being driven to despair and suicide, and the final generation of the young are beautiful but violent and cruel. The middle-aged are trying to sustain normality under the absolute rule of Xan Lyppiatt, the charismatic dictator and Warden of England.

Theo Faron is an Oxford historian and cousin of the Warden, living a solitary, self-regarding life in this ominous atmosphere. By chance at Evensong in Magdalen he meets a young woman, one of a small group who seek to challenge the power of the Warden's regime.

Theo's life is dramatically changed and he is drawn into almost unimaginable horrors...
