A propos de cet article

Octavo, pp. [3-5] 6-256 [257-258: ads] [note: text complete despite gap in pagination], original olive-green ribbed cloth, front and spine panels stamped in silver and red. First edition in English. A translation of DIX MILLE ANS DANS UN BLOC DE GLACE (1889). A sequel of sorts to LES SECRETS DE MONSIEUR SYNTHESE (1888-9). This same monsieur, the sole survivor of a polar expedition, is resuscitated, after having been in suspended animation for 10,000 years, by the Cerebrals, an advanced race of tiny humanoids (a cross of Chinese and Negroes) possessing tremendous mental powers which enable them, among other things, to fly and to communicate with Mars. Versins notes that the book is remarkable for its lack of the sort of racism that characterizes most adventure fiction of this period. It is also, for a sleeper-awakes-in-the-distant-utopian-future SF tale, unusually short. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-21 and (1981) 1-25. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 246. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 087. Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 24. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 38. Locke, Voyages in Space 41. Suvin, Victorian Science Fiction in the UK, p. 71. Versins, Encyclopédie de l'Utopie des Voyages Extraordinaires et de la Science Fiction, (1972), pp. 126-27. Bleiler (1978), p. 28. Reginald 01674. Tiny private owner's rubber-stamped name on front free endpaper. Touch of rubbing at spine ends, a very good, bright copy. Superior condition for this book. (#149689). N° de réf. du libraire 149689
