Annotation

“Politics is divulged in the light of God as the craft of the Devil, and the opposite of a useful science.” Change is brought about by refusing to pay rents. Loaded with generalities and terribly written. See also 1860 Lookup, Excelsior and 1860 Lookup, Soldier of the People. Two other works that are related but not specifically utopian appear to complete Lookup’s publications–Italy free, or Our hero abroad, representing the enlightened battle of the age, beginning at Rome and ending in a triumphal entry into Paris. New-York: Kennedy, 1859; and The granddaughter of the Caesars, or, The hag of the earth and the syren of the waters: containing, besides, a pathetic story of greed’s victims and difficulty’s brokers. New York: Kennedy, 1860. Excelsior, Soldier of the People, and The granddaughter of the Caesar’s are included, separately paged, in his Popular Romances for the Times. I. Excelsior; or, An interesting young man and his friends. II. The soldier of the people; or, The enlightened captain and liberator. III. The granddaughter of the Caesars; or, Hag of the earth and syren of the waters. New York: Kennedy, 1860.
