Chicago: Schulte, 1891. First published a year earlier, this utopian political novel, was one of the nineteenth-century’s great crackpot books. In Bleiler. Inscribed by the author the year before his death, "Every hour since this book was written has shown that it is prophecy. Ignatius Donnelly. Feb. 22, 1900." A former Congressman and Populist Party founder, Donnelly’s books (Atlantis, The Great Cryptogram) promoted his weird ideas. Hinges weak; very good.
