In the late 1620’s, English bishop Francis Godwin, writing under the pseudonym of Domingo Gonsales, wrote what is considered as the first science fiction novel ‘The Man in the Moone’.

 

The story describes Gonsales’ twelve day journey to the moon, using a flying machine tethered to a species of powerful swans he calls the gansa.  On the surface he encounters the Lunars, inhabiting a utopian paradise.

 

This is my interpretation of the titlepage.
