Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-304, original pictorial light brown wrappers printed in black. First edition. Cover title reads: "Beyond the Black Ocean: Story of a Social Revolution." Two editions of this book were published in 1901, this one and another published in Chicago by Charles H. Kerr & Company. The Kerr edition probably preceded the Standard edition. The Standard edition was also issued in a cloth binding. This paperbound issue is probably later; the copyright page indicates that it was issued as number 18 of "Progressive Thought," a series published quarterly, this issue dated "January, 1902." "A utopian romance in the category of Thomas Erskine's ARMATA (1816-1817) concerning the nations and society of the inhabitants of a sphere attached to Earth at the North Pole. Their scientific attainments include airships, and communication with Mars occurs." - Locke, Voyages in Space 138. "In a trans-Arctic area a world which is the mirror of our own goes through a similar history after settlement by the ten lost tribes of Israel. The chief differences between the two worlds is the development of a cooperative commonwealth in the land corresponding to the United States. This difference is largely the result of the accidental crossing of the Black Ocean which now separates the two worlds by 200 Irish revolutionaries fleeing defeat by the British. Their influence leads to a new society which includes such wonders as a one-hour workday, control of the weather, and communication with Mars." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, pp. 119-120.
