The Last Man

Taken from an ancient text found abandoned in a cave, The Last Man ends in 2100, ?the last year of the world.? A devastating worldwide plague has annihilated all of humanity except for one man, who chronicles the world's demise. This novel of apocalyptic horror, originally published in 1826, was rejected in its time and was out of print from 1833 to 1965, when the first Bison Books edition appeared.
