Description du livre G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, 1883. Octavo, pp. [i-ii] iii-iv 1-358 [359-360: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated mustard cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black, decorated white endpapers with floral pattern printed in light orange. First edition. American utopia of the far future, a rare precursor of Bellamy's LOOKING BACKWARD (1888). There are close resemblances to Bellamy's utopia and some early critics incorrectly claimed Bellamy plagiarized Macnie's book. In a mesmeric journey to 26th century the hero discovers a highly regulated utopia. "As perhaps the second most important American nineteenth-century ideal society THE DIOTHAS has been examined for connections with Edward Bellamny's LOOKING BACKWARD. There are certain obvious similarities between the two books . But it must also be pointed out that their common ground is general to the utopian tradition, and that Macnie's conservative, puritanical ideal society differs greatly from Bellamy's ideal socialist state. THE DIOTHAS is well written and is very readable, with exposition and story well integrated." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2166. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1131. See Lewis, Utopian Literature, pp. 114-15, Roemer (ed), America as Utopia, pp. 297-98, and Suvin, Metamorphoses of Science Fiction, p. 177. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 2166.

Bleiler (1978), p. 192. Reginald 14054. Wright (III) 3556. Cloth soiled and rubbed, soil and finger marks on front free endpaper and front flyleaf, a mathematical calculation on rear flyleaf, a sound, but not especially distinguished, copy. The 1883 edition of this book is rare. (#151786). N° de réf. du libraire 151786
