From release/information:

From publisher's website: In 1915 the father of modern science fiction contributed to the long list of adventures of the 18th century super-hero, Baron M√ľnchausen.

Hugo Gernsback used his magazine Electrical Experimenter as a proving ground for his theory that science fiction could be used to teach science. Never before published as a book, and complete with the original illustrations, this is early 20th century science fiction by the man who made science fiction famous. Hugo Gernsback is often called the father of science-fiction. In 1926 he created the world's first regular science fiction periodical, Amazing Stories but long before that he tested the market for science fiction within the pages of his science magazines. Between 1912 and 1929 Gernsback was the unchallenged champion of fiction with a scientific edge. In the 1950s the highest award in science fiction was named after him.
