Dreamlands: 1499

How did I not know about this? An early printed book in which:
1. our hero has to go on a pointcrawl through the dreamlands chasing (what else) his lady love
2. the lady love gives us a critique of the hero’s lunacy and shortcomings, making her a dream protagonist who is aware of things the dreamer himself is not
3. all that is solid melts into air. In 1499. English translation by Joscelyn Godwin, from whom one can still occasionally get lectures on Atlantis myths.
h/t Scott Martin
