Description

D. Appleton, New York, 1885. First edition. VI+452+[8]pp (ads), 36 b & w illustrations, including frontispiece Lovely gilt comet, Sun, Earth and iceberg on front cover and spine, floral ep's, full page ad with four blurbs for Donnelly's 'Atlantis' (of which this is the sequel) at back and another for 'Ragnarok,' plus other ads for texts on astronomy and ancient history. Though his 'Atlantis' is still regarded as the best historical work on the subject, 'Ragnarok,' equally important, has never gained much attention even though his thesis, that a comet caused an ice age 20,000 years ago, turned out to be prophetic. For Donnelly, the comet's flood destroyed completely, an ancient civilization that modern people would say never even existed, Atlantis, forever damning Donnelly, who was also a great senator from Minnesota to the crackpot bin of history. cloth a bit edge-worn, but generally clean and bright, sewing strained as almost always with this publication gilt decorated & lettered brown cloth [first edition], sixth thousandth printing.
