Price: $2.00
A speculative novelette predicting some changes in the world 200 years into the future from the year 1871, written by a noted Dutch scientist, originally published in the Dutch language, the author hiding himself behind the pen name of "Dr. Dioscorides". The story begins as the narrator settles into his comfortable chair and ponders the predictions made by Roger Bacon, the 13th-century scholar, that actually came true by the 19th century: telescopes, self-propelled vehicles, bridges across spans without intermediate supports, devices to navigate without navigators, ships that can be controlled by a single man at great speeds. As he dozes, he suddenly becomes alert and sees that he is in the year 2071 by the date on a clock tower. A noble old man appears before him, whom he recognizes as Roger Bacon, with a young lady named Miss Phantasia. He learns from them that he is in the city of Londinia, a megalopolis formerly London, England.
