A propos de cet article

Brown cloth with gilt lettering and cover decoration of stars and a lamp, beveled edges. Mild rub to head and heel of spine and tips of corners. Text is overall clean and bright, but does show sporadic foxing. 97 pages. "A peculiar book that we find somewhat difficult to describe. The author calls it 'A horoscope of mental growth containing a metaphysical discovery.' The dream occupies 24 pages and relates how a student from a New England college fell asleep in the Catskill Mountains and dreamt he slept for fifty years and on awakening found had neither advanced in age nor wisdom. Hoping to readjust himself to the mental world he goes west and into business as a doctor of philosophy. In this capacity he is interviewed by a farmer who is dreadfully mixed and is painfully seeking light upon a number of problems such as space time force, etc. In an appendix of 23 more pages are discussed the questions suggested by the farmer, the author calling to account the teachers religion and lamenting the apparent conflict between the scientists and the ministers. A novelty about the book the manner in which it is set up only one side of the being printed upon." (from The Publishers Weeky [No. 485] April, 1881). N° de réf. du libraire B102210
