19th Century Utopias
Over 100 Utopian novels appeared in the latter half of the 19th Century, most of which have been forgotten. Among the earliest and most successful was Edward Bulwer-Lytton‘s The Coming Race (1871) which became an international best seller.
Samuel Butler wrote the early Utopian sf novel Erewhon: or, Over the Range (1872) and its belated sequel Erewhon Revisited Twenty Years Later, Both by the Original Discoverer of the Country and by His Son (1901).
