Baron Thomas Erskine

Armata

Utopian Novel

In 1815, British ship Colombia wrecks on the coast of Armata, the dominant nation on the planet of Deucalia. Welcome and introduced by a compatriot stranded here decades before, the sole survivor finds a nation facing its fall from grace and asking for his advice.

Published anonymously by Thomas Erskine in 1817, this classic of Utopian literature introduced the idea of a twin planet to earth, using it as a mirror to Erskine's British homeland.
This edition collects both volumes of the story along with annotations and an overview of historical persons mentioned in the books.
