2019 Reprint of 1892 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. Illustrated facsimile of the original edition first published in 1893. Baron Trump's Marvelous Underground Journey remained an obscure work until 2017 when it received media attention for perceived similarities between its protagonist and U.S. President Donald Trump. The novel recounts the adventures of the German boy Wilhelm Heinrich Sebastian Von Troomp, who goes by "Baron Trump", as he discovers weird underground civilizations, offends the natives, flees from his entanglements with local women, and repeats this pattern until arriving back home at Castle Trump. In July 2017 the books were rediscovered by Internet forum users, and then the media, who pointed out similarities between the protagonist and U.S. President Donald Trump, whose son is named Barron Trump. Jaime Fuller wrote in Politico that Baron Trump is "precocious, restless, and prone to get in trouble", often mentions his massive brain, and has a personalized insult for most people he meets. Chris Riotta noted in Newsweek that Baron Trump's adventures begin in Russia. Hence the renewed interest in the works of this obscure American children’s books author.
