Iter Lunaire

ByDavid Russen

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Originally published in 1703, "Iter Lunaire" is one of the first books to discuss the real possibility of exploring space, the methods of doing so and what might be found there. Taking Cyrano De Bergerac's classic "Comic History" as its jumping-off point, author Russen discusses the pros and cons of the French writer's fanciful methods of space travel...and adds some of his own, including what may be the most unusual method of traveling to the Moon ever suggested. Along the way, Russen anticipates such modern scientific developments as the germ theory of disease and hyperlinked reference books. The only concessions to modern readers has been in the use of quotation marks and the substitution of the lower-case "s" for the "long s" of the original, which is too often confused for "f".
