This unusual early work on 'Flat Earth Theory' was originally published in 1901. It comprises a comprehensive series of essays which use scripture, reason and fact to (attempt to) prove that the earth is not a planet. The text makes for an entertaining and informative read, providing a wonderful insight into the philosophy of a bygone age. Its chapters include discussions of: The Adamic Creation, The Nebular Hypothesis: Examinatin of three Alleged Proofs of the World’s Globarity, The Horizontality of Land and Water Proved, The Sun, according to the Scriptures, The Deluge-Biblical Account, The Great Deep a Proof that the Earth is not a Planet... and much, much more! Many old works such as this are increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that this book is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the subject.

Excerpt from Terra Firma, the Earth Not a Planet: Proved From Scripture, Reason and Fact I am now an old man, and, had I consulted my own comfort, would never have penned a line of this book, as for some years I have had cataract in both eyes, so that it was not without difiiculty that I. Could read or write. So great, however, appeared to be the need, and being still anxious to serve my generation, I determined to undertake this work, in order to expose the fallacies of Modern Astronomy, which are so contrary to the Word of God, and so conducive to the promotion of Infidelity. I do not enter the lists arrayed in the panoply of Neo Science, to fight this great Goliath, but only with a few pebbles of the brook, yet I trust that, with God's blessing, the attempt may not be altogether fruitless.

The Victorian revival of the flat-earth idea was led by a dedicated group of campaigners who used the scriptures and science to underpin a radical challenge to the most fundamental facts. Their movement sparked a controversy that entangled men of science and astonished the general public with its unorthodox theories, public experiments, lawsuits, and even death threats. The story bears the hallmarks of a Victorian melodrama, but as Christine Garwood discovers, the campaign continued through the twentieth century, despite the Apollo missions and widely publicized pictures of the earth from space. Based on a range of original sources, Garwoods history of flat-earth beliefsfrom the Babylonians to the present dayraises issues central to the history and philosophy of science, its relationship with religion, and the making of human knowledge about the natural world. Flat Earth is the first definitive study of one of historys most notorious and persistent ideas, and evokes all the intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual turmoil of the modern age.
