Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-10] 1-319 [320-322: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], eleven inserted plates, several double page, with black and white illustrations by Joseph Clement Coll, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. Protagonist awakens in a grim world of the future dominated by socialism and science and learns that legend has made him a kind of messiah. He leads a successful revolt against the establishment. The story, first published in EVERYBODY'S MAGAZINE as a four-part serial, June-September 1917, is one of the earliest American dystopian novels. "A more considerable work than is generally recognized, despite the pulp adventure aspects. One can find among the author's ultraconservative values such Orwellian anticipations as omnipresent slogans, euphemistic terms for horrible institutions, the artificial language Spikisi, the mechanics of thought control, and the apparatus of the police state. While the book is a deutero-WHEN THE SLEEPER WAKES, it is independent in detail, and much Rousseau's best work." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1922. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-131; (1981) 1-143; and (2004) II-927. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 662. Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 46. Gerber, Utopian Fantasy (1973), p. 147. Locke, Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 186. Negley, Utopian Literature: A Bibliography 315. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 160. Bleiler (1978), p. 171. Reginald 12502. Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 E-163. Christmas 1917 gift inscription on front free endpaper. Slight spine lean, lower corner tips lightly bruised, endpapers foxed, some foxing to top edge of text block and upper portion of half title leaf, still a very attractive copy with clean and bright binding in fine pictorial dust jacket (with Coll illustration on front panel) with touch of wear at bottom spine end. Nice copies of this book are uncommon and it is scarce in jacket. (#108346). N° de réf. du libraire
