The Inhabitants of Space in General

And H. C. in Particular

This Work is Dedicated

By a Humble Native of Flatland

In the Hope that

Even as he was Initiated into the Mysteries

Of Three Dimensions

Having been previously conversant

With Only Two

So the Citizens of that Celestial Region

May aspire yet higher and higher

To the Secrets of Four Five or even Six Dimensions

Thereby contributing

To the Enlargement of the Imagination

And the possible Development

Of that most rare and excellent Gift of Modesty

Among the Superior Races

Of Solid Humanity
