JAHRTAUSENDWENDE. IN TAUSEND UND EINEM JAHR. EIN BIOSOPHISCHER ERZIEHUNGSROMAN AUF ERPOLITISCHER. GRUNDLAGE. Dresden und Leipzig: E. Piersons Verlag, 1912. Octavo, pp. [i-ii] iii-xi [xii] [1-2] 3-173 [174: blank] [175-176: ads], inserted extra title leaf with color illustration, original white cloth, front and spine panel stamped in gold, all edges gilt, floral patterned endpapers. First edition. A tale of the future in which the United States, Japan, South America and other nations form an economic partnership and exclude Europe. Germany, Scandinavia, The Netherlands and the Flemish provinces form their own economic bloc. The United States and its allies cut off trade with Europe. A highly destructive war between America, its partners and the Europeans follows. The Pan-German people mix and through a selection process (eugenics) create a new breed of humans. The survivors, the new breed, become godlike in the end, "light people" who can command the forces of nature. Antidemocratic and anti-socialist propaganda is interspersed throughout. Unlike many of his nationalistic contemporaries, Driesmans believed the “Jewish Problem” could be solved by “race mixing.” According to Sapra, this is "in every way a remarkable novel." Lexikon 1, pp. 70-1. Bloch (2002) 804. Not in Nagl. A clean, nearly fine copy. KVK reports 6 copies. OCLC reports 2 copies. Rare. (#148109).
