Description

HIS THINKING AND WRITING WAS A FUSION OF SCIENCE, SCIENCE FICTION, AND THE SPIRITUAL

CAMILLE FLAMMARION (1846-1936) SIGNED NOTE, “Camille Flammarion”, on a card 4.5 x 3.25, by the French astronomer and author of over 50 books, including popular science works about astronomy, several notable early science fiction novels, and works on psychical research and related topics. He has been described as an “astronomer, mystic, and story teller” who was “obsessed by life after death, and on other worlds and who seemed to see no difference between the two.” His wonderfully appropriate handwritten note in French, translated in full: “Don’t you find it strange that the inhabitants of your planet have almost all lived so far without knowing where they are, without being interested in wondering about it, and without boasting of the wonders of the universe.” In fine condition, with minor age toning.
