Gibbon, Edwarda

Tagged: Author

Pseudonym of the unidentified author (?   -?   ) of The History of the Decline and Fall of the British Empire (1884 chap), a Near Future tale in which a shift in the Gulf Stream causes a savage Climate Change to afflict Britain; eventually, after a century or two, the monarchy moves shop to New Zealand. The tale is told as by a native of that land (see New Zealander), and ends in a contemplation of the ruins of London Bridge. [JC]
