Illustrated version of "Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions" by Edwin Abbott Abbott. This masterpiece of science (and mathematical) fiction is a delightfully unique and highly entertaining satire that has charmed readers for more than 100 years. The work of English clergyman, educator and Shakespearean scholar Edwin A. Abbott (1838-1926), it describes the journeys of A. Square, a mathematician and resident of the two-dimensional Flatland, where women-thin, straight lines-are the lowliest of shapes, and where men may have any number of sides, depending on their social status. Through strange occurrences that bring him into contact with a host of geometric forms, Square has adventures in Spaceland (three dimensions), Lineland (one dimension) and Pointland (no dimensions) and ultimately entertains thoughts of visiting a land of four dimensions—a revolutionary idea for which he is returned to his two-dimensional world. Charmingly illustrated by the author, Flatland is not only fascinating reading, it is still a first-rate fictional introduction to the concept of the multiple dimensions of space.

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is a satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott, first published in 1884. It describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments, while men are polygons with various numbers of sides. The narrator is a square, who guides the reader through some of the implications of life in two dimensions. On the eve of the 3rd Millennium, the Square dreams about a visit to Lineland, a one-dimensional world, where he tries to convince the realm's monarch of a second dimension. The square is then visited by a three-dimensional sphere, which visits Flatland at the turn of each millennium to introduce a new apostle to the idea of a third dimension in the hopes of eventually educating the population of Flatland. This 19th century work can arguably be categorised as mathematical fiction as much as it can be regarded as science fiction. In common with the best science fiction it opens the reader's mind to new horizons.

Dieser Roman ist ein Klassiker der Science-Fiction Literatur. Ein altes Quadrat erzählt von seinem Leben im Flächenland und seinen Ausflügen in das Raum-, Linien- und Punktland. Das Faszinierende daran: Edwin A.Abbott hat diesen Roman 1884 (!) das erste mal veröffentlicht und läßt diese Geschichte am 30.12.1999, also 115 Jahre später, beginnen... Abbott wollte mit seiner Gesellschaftssatire das geometrische bzw. stereometrische Denken seiner Leser fördern sowie Gesellschaftsordnung und Vorurteile seiner Zeit karikieren

Edwin Abbott Abbott's satirical 1884 novella Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, is "on the surface" an examination of multiple dimensions. Its author, writing anonymously as "A Square" takes us on a fantastical trip to a completely flat, two-dimensional world whose inhabitants are geometric shapes. These shapes think that the "planar" world of length and width are all that exist, until one shape discovers the existence of a third physical dimension, which ultimately is expanded to the concept of a fourth. As a given shape, one's class and intelligence is determined by one's number of sides. Men are depicted as polygonal, while women are straight lines (now hang on a minute!)... Flatland illustrates marvelously the difficulty a person or group might have seeing a greater reality, or different reality, than its own. In this world of "plane geometry" with "Euclidian Geometric" shapes, each dimension can only perceive the one below it - so if one has evidence of a third, what about a fourth?
