Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-291 [292-296: blank] [note: last two leaves are blanks], original red cloth, front and rear panels ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. On a camping trip in rural Minnesota, the narrator encounters a curious creature, partly humanoid but with wings on his back; smaller wings in the front of his body that function apparently as clothing as well as sensory organs; an extra pair of limbs around his mid-section; a huge head with huge eyes and a vertical mouth. It immediately began to communicate with the camper, seeming to understand the camper's spoken words but addressing him telepathically. He is amiable and professorial in demeanor and proceeds to explain society on the Moon, as well as on Mars, which has been colonized by the Lunarians. The import of the book is clearly utopian, with detailed accounts (including measurements in some cases) about various aspects (economic, agricultural, sociological, biological, technological) of the society. The Lunarians' guiding principles are largely progressive (socialist, feminist, etc.). Balancing the didactic nature of the novel is the abundance of vivid and exotic details about life forms on the two planets (for example, the Lunarians have a third gender, and the dominant species on Mars resembles a starfish). The Lunarian professor has also traveled backward in time from the twenty-first century to reach the camper. "A curious book, very interesting for its imagination and unusual ideas. Along with Dail's WILMOTH THE WANDERER and Dieudonne's RONDAH, it falls into the category of fascinating eccentric books." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 31. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 009. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 20. Locke, Voyages in Space 2. Negley, Utopian Literature: A Bibliography 20. Rooney, Dreams and Visions: A Study of American Utopias, 1865-1917, p. [181]. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature 1516-1985, p. 144. Bleiler (1978), p. 3. Reginald 00171. Erratum slip affixed to front paste-down. A nearly fine copy. (#147941). N° de réf. du libraire
