A very fine set.Jules Verne (1828-1905), "French writer whose writings shaped the development of modern science fiction In 1863 Verne published the first of his Voyages extraordinaires—Cinq semaines en ballon (1863; Five Weeks in a Balloon). The great success of the tale encouraged him to produce others in the same vein of romantic adventure, with increasingly deft depictions of fantastic but nonetheless carefully conceived imaginary scientific wonders. The Voyages continued with Le Voyage au centre de la Terre (1864; A Journey to the Center of the Earth), De la Terre à la Lune (1865; From the Earth to the Moon), Vingt Mille Lieues sous les mers (1869-70; Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea), and L’Île mystérieuse (1874; The Mysterious Island), in which he foresaw a number of scientific devices and developments, including the submarine, the aqualung, television, and space travel. Verne’s novels were enormously popular throughout the world; one in particular, the grippingly realistic Le Tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours (1873; Around the World in Eighty Days), generated great excitement during its serial publication in Le Temps and remained one of his most popular works" (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).

Item Description: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle, 1873. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First edition. This copy has 1873 on the title page, which is legendarily scarce. The Myers bibliography could only speculate on how many copies were released. The vast majority of copies have 1874 on the copyright page. Even rarer than the Osgood issue of Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, of which fewer than 50 have ever been found. Sumner and Stillman, well-respected British booksellers and specialists in Verne, have only had one in the last 25 years, which sold "well into the 5 figures." Temple books sold their copy for $14,000 several months ago. Condition and Description: See pictures. Very good overall. Elaborate gilt embossed red cloth, with black impressed illustrations. This book appeared in several different cloth variants--red, blue, and, green and purple. Illustrated with black and white plates. Frontispiece with tissue guard. Light - moderate foxing on the preliminaries and postliminaries as usual, which tapers progressively in an inward fashion. Gilt edges. The gilt on the cover is raised and scuffed in some locations, with some loss and fading. All pages and plates present and accounted for. Discrete and expert repair to the covers, including the spine ends (particularly the top/top left). The hinges and binding are tight, having benefited from invisible strengthening. The back end end paper and flyleaf have some age staining and a light reddish stain which runs the bottom edge, and a very small and very old bookseller bookseller sticker. In all, though not a perfect copy one which is both presentable and so scarce that options are limited. For those looking for a fine copy, please see David Mile's book catalog ($16,500).

Original end papers are present with no inscriptions, no prior owner names and no bookplates. The book has no edgewear and all the pages are present. The internal pages are overall clean for a Verne book with a small very faded water mark to the very outer corner of many pages (if you look carefully you can notice it in the images, but it is very faded so hard to notice).

This is a very thick book of 299 pages plus a small publishers catalogue at the end.

Another rip-roaring Verne extravaganza set in a Scottish mine where, naturally all is not as it seems, for a start is has people living in it (in a cottage, which seems overdoing it somewhat) and a series of strange events occur, many of which seem to involve a giant, psychotic owl. And pirates.alright it doesn't have pirates, but it does have a giant owl, and strange doings. Bookseller Inventory # 35393

Item Description: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, London, 1888. Book Condition: Good. Benett (illustrator). First Edition. Very scarce UK first edition of this novel set during the American Civil War. The first French edition, under the title Nord contre Sud, appeared in Autumn 1887. This UK edition, with the same copious illustrations as the French volume, came out for Christmas 1887 but was post-dated 1888. Unusually the publishers paginated the book in two parts, 1-173 and 1-154 (plus 64 tipped in plates), knowing that they would subsequently issue in the book in 2 volumes. There was just one printing of the book under this title as the subsequent printings used the sub-titles Burbank the Northerner and Texar the Southerner. The Myers' bibliographies are singularly uninformative about this book (their No. 49), erroneously noting that it appeared in pictorial wraps. Grey cloth lettered in gilt and illustrated in black and red. All edges gilt, modern replacement pale yellow endpapers. Boards very slightly warped and minor soiling to front cover but overall an attractive and internally very clean copy. Bookseller Inventory # 000006

Item Description: Boston. James R. Osgood and Company. 1874, 1874. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. Boston. James R. Osgood and Company. 1874. Copyright page dated 1873. Hardcover, 315 pages. Illustrated. Bound in orange/brown (often described at terra-cotta) cloth with black and gold decorations and lettering on cover and spine. A couple of signatures are a little loose, but everything is still firmly attached - both text block and binding. Pages uniformly toned with age. There is a 1/2 tear at the crown of the spine and a 4" tear along the bottom of the rear hinge, but neither of these compromises the strength of the binding. This Osgood edition is generally accepted as the first American Edition, although there are a very small number that are dated 1873 (those were recalled or destroyed because of a flaw in the binding). Some might argue that this is Verne's most famous work (though the Captain Nemo people have a good case) - it is certainly one of the most beloved of tales of the modern era. This copy is in good condition, though I wish it were cleaner and tighter. There is foxing on the tissue guard at the frontispiece and the endpapers and a general somewhat fragile feeling to the binding - though when I tug and pull, everything stays put. Please e-mail for photos. It's in better shape than I make it sound. [stored in the safe]. Bookseller Inventory # Fred-B173

Item Description: London, Sampson Low, Marston and Company. 1894, 1894. First English edition, later impression. Publishers bottle green decorated cloth binding, embossed in gilt and black depicting a rather fetching "man meets polar bear" theme. Slight signs of rubbing to corners and head of spine, but very minor, bright and strong. A scarce printing, lavishly illustrated by our old friend M. Rioux, depicting the continued (if slightly less sound) adventures of The Baltimore Gun Club, as they purchase the afore mentioned Arctic and seek to divert the earth from its accustomed orbit to shift the climate zones. This will result in the privately owned North Pole becoming a tropical paradise, allowing the Club to clean up on the cruise ship and pina colada holidays market. A tropical paradise inhabited by polar bears? Who ever heard such a.wait just a minute! Once again Mr.Verne proves that, if it hasn't a some point entered his head, it probably isn't worth thinking about. Presumably if I were an ABC executive I'd consider buying his entire body of work and locking J.J. Abrams in a broom closet with a flashlight until he'd read them all. A splendid book.

Item Description: London, Sampson, Low and Co. 1900, 1900. First English deluxe edition. Profusely illustrated, and with one fold out chart/gameboard for tracking one's progress across the United States. Publisher's green cloth boards decorated and titled in gilt, black, orange and white with a suitably Verneian (a word that in this context means "Utterly Bizarre") scene of three men on a tandem (tridem?) cycling energetically across a desolate mountainous landscape whilst discharging revolvers at a pursuing pack of wolves. As you do. Minor scuffing and edgewear otherwise exceptionally clean and sharp. This de luxe edition was publshed similtaneously with floral endpapers and all edges gilt. Internally clean and bright, ink ownership to front flyleaf, the plate facing page 152 has at some stage come loose and develop a crease along the top edge prior to being reattached. A nice example of a madcap bit of scarce late Verne involving a lunatic race across America for enough cash to build your own nuclear submarine and fly it to the moon. Wacky Races goes steampunk, endearingly frenetic and madder than an eel flavoured hat. BBA sale 634 [Literature]. Bookseller Inventory # 42791
