Titre : GIPHANTIA; OR A VIEW OF WHAT HAS PASSED, ...
Éditeur : Printed for Robert Horsfield, in Ludgate-Street 1761-1760., London
Date d'édition : 1761
Reliure : Hardcover
Edition : 1st Edition
Small octavo, two parts in volume: pp. [1-6]  2-130; [1-4]  2-126 [127: ad] [128: blank], title page printed in red and black, early three-quarter leather and marbled boards. First edition in English. Part two is dated MDCCLX, most likely in error as the first part was published in 1761 (and is so dated) and the translator's preface in part one is dated "Feb. 5, 1761." The narrator travels to Giphantia, in Guinea, home of a scientifically advanced race. Using devices which amplify sounds and project images, he views fragments of the past, present, and future history of the world. Mainly philosophical dialogues, satire and social criticism.
