Extremely scarce otherwise. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 460 pages; Wholly designed and in great part written before the appearance of any of the recent works of fiction of which The Coming Race and Erewhon are the most notable, By and By claims to belong, both by character and purpose, to a category wholly distinct from any to which they can be assigned. For while, in the first place, they do not pretend to describe a probable or even possible state of society, By and By contemplates a condition of things easily imaginable as resulting from the natural development of existing tendencies in knowledge and thought; and, in the second place, while they offer nothing that can serve as suggestion or caution for use in the future, By and By indicates the direction and spirit in which society must develop if it would arrive at certain results. Following its companion tales, The Pilgrim and the Shrine and Higher Law, By and By assumes the inherent divinity of the universe, and, consequently, the capacity of Nature to produce the highest results in character and conduct, and by virtue of its own impulses to work out its own "redemption." As the aim of its predecessors, therefore, was to present respectively the evolution of religion and morals out of the contact of the world with the human consciousness, and so to show the sufficiency of the intuitions for all purposes of life, moral and spiritual, so the aim of By and By is to present a state of society in which the intuitions have attained supremacy over tradition and convention, and individuals may follow their own ideals of life, unrestricted save by the law of equal liberty for all.
