The Comical History of the States and Empires of the Worlds of the Moon and Sun.

by Cyrano de Bergerac

  • Used
Translated by Archibald Lovell. Engraved frontispiece. 8vo. Original late 17th century English calf. London, for Henry Rhodes, 1687. First Edition in English of one of the earliest works of science fiction, and a key work of utopian literature.

Cyrano's fantastic voyages to the moon and the sun offer a picture of the universe drawn from the still-young ideas of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, and Cyrano's own teacher Gassendi, and at the same time invented Utopian societies as vehicles for satire.


Cyrano's ingenious mixture of science and romance has furnished a model for many subsequent writers, among them Jonathan Swift and Edgar Allan Poe. "The first writer to describe an interplanetary journey by means of rockets. He is a very sharp satirist and his tale abounds with amusing attacks on religion, contemporary scientific theory, philosophy, customs and mores. Throughout the development many small points are based on Cyrano's interpretation or extrapolation of the day. The book is thus science-fiction of its period. A remarkable book that deserves wider readership than it has received." (Bleiler. Science-Fiction: The Early Years, 542.)

Front hinge cracked but holding; lacking "To the Reader" leaf in the first part, and the errata leaf at the end of the second part. Title and frontispiece are somewhat toned, not affecting the integrity of the paper; occasional mild foxing; o/w a very nice copy with ample margins. Very Scarce in a 17th century binding.

With fifty-four plates and an engraved illustration in the text by A. de Neuville and L. Benett and a small drawing by Verne. Introduction by Adrien Marx. Translated by George M. Towle. In his article in the July/August 1996 issue of Firsts Arthur B. Edwards notes that "... there is a fully illustrated Osgood octavo edition, published at the end of November, 1873, taken from the British sheets. This is titled Around the World in Eighty Days, and is very scarce. It seems to have had production problems that caused the spine to crack and chip when the book was read; consequently no 1873 copies have been seen in better than good condition (p. 42)." Cloth is worn at spine ends, spine panel faded, hinges a bit tender, neatly penned inscription on flyleaf dated Christmas 1873. A very good copy. Barron, Anatomy of… Read More

8vo. London: Excudebat Robertus Barkerus. 1609. Second Printing. This copy exhibits the reading 'agi-' at the end of line 11 on B2r indicative of the form with some of the errata corrected, and 3E2 blank, rather than bearing errata. Lancelot Andrewes was an English clergyman and scholar, who held high positions in the Church of England during the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I. He was in turn Bishop of Chichester, Ely and Winchester, and oversaw the translation of the Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible. His Tortura Torti - a learned work which grew out of the Gunpowder Plot controversy - was written in answer to Roberto Bellarmino's Matthaeus Tortus which had criticized James I's oath of allegiance. Tortura Torti is one of the Bishop's most substantial controversial works, in which he "refuted papal supremacy and the pope's power to dispense Catholics from moral and civil laws, and defended the king's supremacy over the Church of England. One of the views intruded into the… Read More
