Edwin Abbott Abbott, 1884

I was intrique with the amount of detail that went into the classification and history of the Flatland society.

Is this solely the creation of the author, reflection of his current times, or was another template used?

 

I believe it was written for his daughter, to explain the concept of dimensions, back in Victorian times.
