A prediction for the year 1998, from the year 1898.
It starts with:
Every person of fairly good education and of restless mind writes a book. As a rule, it is a superficial book, but it swells the bulk and it indicated the cerebral unrest that is trying to express itself. We have arrived at a condition in which more books are printed than the world can read.
It’s an interesting prediction. I read about it on Dynamist’s blog.
