Mitchell, J. A.: The Last American, v.1, 4 July 2008

An apocalyptic sci fi tale set in 2951, this short work was first published in 1889 and is a commentary about American society that probably mirrors the opinions of many today. Taken with a hefty grain of salt, I enjoyed it for its sarcasm and many puns (e.g., Dimph-yoo-chur, Ad-el-pate, Nofuhl).

I apologize for the poor formatting. The PRC version is notably ugly. BD is being particularly unkind today and won't even let me define a book author without destroying the formatting elsewhere.

EDIT: I have replaced the previous unillustrated version (11 downloads to date) with this illustrated version that combines a later edition of the text with the illustrations from an 1889 edition (thanks, Google Books). This IMP edition does not includes the following diacritical marks which the Rocketbook does not support: ā, ō, ū. This affects the following proper nouns:

No-fuhl should be read as Nō-fūhl
Nhu-Yok as Nhū-Yok
Zlotuhb as Zlōtuhb
Ja-khaz and Boz-ja-khaz as Jā-khāz and Bhoz-jā-khāz
Tik'l-palyt as Tik'l-pālyt

2nd EDIT: I have replaced the file with new versions created using Nick's Mobi2IMP. There were a total of 57 downloads of the first two versions.
