Another World and Yet the Same: Bishop Joseph Hall's "Mundus Alter et Idem"

Yale University Press, 1981. Hardcover. Very Good / No Dustjacket. Item #069905
ISBN: 0300026137

Pages crisp and clean except for a prior owner's name penned at the front endpaper and repeated at the final endpaper as well as a pale blue smudge on the right edge of the page block; binding square and secure, full yellow cloth cover showing a few scattered specks front and back, some dimming along the spine, modest softening at spine ends, and some rubbing at spine ends and corners, otherwise excellent. No dust jacket. 230pp. Originally published in 1605, this fantastical-journey story is as satirical as Gulliver's Travels, but much more subtle and with passages of delightfully dry-humored imaginary archaeology, history, maps, colloquialisms, religions, politics, and more.
