The Consolidator

The Consolidator. This 1705 novel by Daniel Defoe is a prime example of the early use of an imaginary voyage to the moon to satirize life, politics and culture on earth. Defoe's novel is made even more remarkable by his prescient use of scientific devices, such as a flying machine propelled by an internal combustion engine.
