Summary
"The history outlined here chronicles the evolution and development of scientifically-influenced fiction in France from its seventeenth-century foundation-stones to the late 1930s, including interplanetary fantasies, futuristic fantasies, and, attempts to produce a reasoned account of such evolution, paying heed to the differences between it and the parallel processes going on in Britain and America. The plurality of imaginary worlds reviews over 300 works from 1657 to 1939 and is illustrated with nearly 200 cover reproduction"--Back cover
