The Life and Astonishing Adventures of John Daniel

The Life and Astonishing Adventures of John Daniel by Ralph Morris. Originally published in 1751, this fantasy-adventure contains one of the most detailed and best-realized spacecraft/flying machines in science fiction. It marked the transition from the fantastic and mystical means of reaching space that had preceded it and laid the foundation for the scientific verisimilitude of Poe and Verne. Illustrated.
