Ingersoll Lockwood’s two books, Baron Trump’s Marvellous Underground Journey & 1900; Or, The Last President, have seen a resurgence in interest since Donald Trump’s election to President of the United States in 2016. Both books were written before the turn of the 20th Century, but both contain eerie similarities with modern day political events. For the first time, both works are presented in a single volume so readers can decipher for themselves whether Lockwood’s words were a telling of things to come, or just a curious coincidence of American literature.

Lockwood’s Baron Trump character shares a similar name to President Donald Trump’s youngest son Barron Trump. Baron, in the novels written by Lockwood, is a wealthy young prince living in “Castle Trump.” He takes on magical adventures in a series of stories after Don, the “master of masters,” shows him a secret portal in Russia which leads to various enchanted worlds Baron goes on to explore.

In 1900; Or, The Last President, Ingersoll Lockwood paints the picture of a politically charged New York City, where a political outsider has overcome stiff opposition to be elected President of the United States. Mob rule threatens, and marching protests rove up and down Fifth Avenue. The scene is an uncanny reflection of what happened as Donald Trump spent his days as President Elect holed up in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue as he awaited his inauguration.

About the Author

Ingersoll Lockwood was born at Ossining, New York, in August 1841 to a well-known legal family. His father, Munson Lockwood, was a brigadier general in the New York State Militia, a lawyer, and also went on to hold the position of Warden at the famous Sing Sing prison. Both of Ingersoll's uncles, Ralph and Albert Lockwood, were also attorneys. Ingersoll was trained in the law, but before establishing a practice, he was appointed Consul to the Kingdom of Hanover by the Lincoln Administration - becoming the youngest member of a U.S. delegation. After his federal service, Ingersoll came back to New York City where he established a successful firm with his brother Henry. In addition to his legal work, Ingersoll began a writing career, which included political essays, fiction and poetry. His most successful works were his children's novels surrounding the character of Baron Trump. He retired to Saratoga Springs New York where he continued to write, publishing his last book of poetry five years before his death in 1918.
