|—||Francis Godwin, "The Man in the Moone, or A Discourse of a Voyage Thither by Domingo Gonsales The Speedy Messenger", 1638; reprinted in The Man in the Moone, and Other Lunar Fantasies ed. Faith Pizor|
Reading this book is almost like reading a foreign language. Fascinating precursors to the science fiction of the modern era. I'm just glad I wasn't Godwin's copy editor.
