No wonder the IISH has become a depositary for the works of utopians.
The special collection of utopians at the IISH includes contemporary editions spanning centuries of utopian thought and ranging from a very early reprint of More’s Utopia (1518) to works by Fourier, Saint-Simon, Cabet, Proudhon, and Owen.
In addition to these original thinkers, the practical exponents, such as the early communist colonies in North America, are also documented. The Catalogue of Titles on Utopian Communities, Colonies, Communes and other Experiments in Living Together is an extract from the complete IISH catalogue and contains 4,000 records
