Anno Domini 2071

(4.5 stars; 2 reviews)

Curious to see how the world was imagined to be 50 years from now? Harting, under the pseudonym Dr. Dioscorides, originally published his steampunk utopian novelette in 1865 under the title Anno 2065, but soon had to publish new editions because of all the changes happening at the time. We have in the catalogue the 1870 edition "Anno 2070" recorded in Dutch. This is the English translation of that edition, published in 1871, and naturally titled "Anno Domini 2071". It isn't free from racial defamation, but it does contain some radical ideas for its time, like the Suffragette movement, the Darwinian Evolution model, and many creatively imagined inventions! - Summary by Rapunzelina (2 hr 11 min)
