Annotation

Presented in millennial terms but contains the same elements of a eutopia as the other Lookup books. All the land belongs to God and cannot be taxed. Loaded with generalities and terribly written. See also 1860 Lookup, Excelsior and 1860 Lookup, The Road Made Plain. 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.
