Item Description: Sampson Low, Marston, Low & Searle, 1873. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Extremely scarce 1873 First edition, First printing The 1873 dated Sampson Low editions scarcity is such that few copies ever even become available for sale, and the few that do are priced into the 5 figures. The 1873 Sampson Low edition of Around The World In Eighty Days is far more scarce than the 1873 Osgood edition of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Seas. This book has beautiful green beveled boards with unfaded gilt titles to the front and spine, and a full gilt page block on all sides. The book is has benefited from being rebacked with the original cloth lay back down thus making the binding tight and square and the book very readable and not fragile as otherwise is typcial of Verne books. The scarce original end papers are present with ownership names to the front end paper (see images), with one being crossed out. The internal pages are all present and remarkably clean for a Verne book with only about a dozen pages with very faded foxing and with a about 3 pages with penciled notes, otherwise the pages are clean and bright with no bent pages, no stains, no foxing, no stains and no tears. Lacking tissue guard. Please see many detailed images. Beautiful scarce, highly collectible, important Verne book in stunning green boards with bright unfaded gilt. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our Abe store for additional Verne listings and other Sci-Fi/Fantasy titles. Bookseller Inventory # 000846

The first fully illustrated English-language edition was published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Low and Searle in November 1873.

The Sampson Low and Osgood editions were reprinted with title pages dated 1874. The 1873 printings are very scarce. The book "seems to have had production problems that caused the spine to crack and chip when the book was read; consequently no 1873 copies have been seen in better than good condition." - Arthur B.

Item Description: 1874. Translated by Geo. M. Towle. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle, 1874. 48 pp ads dated October 1873. Original terra-cotta cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, beveled, all edges gilt. First British Edition, usual 1874 issue, of the famous tale of Phileas Fogg and his trip around the globe, well-known for the 1956 film starring David Niven. Osgood of Boston came out with a small unillustrated volume, the first edition in English, titled THE TOUR OF THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS, in July 1873 (the same year as the original French edition). This first British edition, also the first illustrated edition, was published in November 1873; an American illustrated edition was then prepared from the English one. With both the British and the American illustrated editions, a few copies came out with 1873-dated title pages, but the majority were equipped with 1874-dated title pages (especially in England it was the custom to post-date books that came out near the end of a calendar year). The first British edition dated 1873 is exceedingly scarce (the Myers bibliography could only speculate about its existence): we have had only one copy, sold well into five figures.~This copy is in terra-cotta cloth, one of several colors used without priority (we have had a red and a blue 1874 copy). It is in very nearly fine condition (one bit of wear at one upper corner of the spine); the covers remain clean and bright, and there is no foxing on the many plates within.

Item Description: James R. Osgood and Company, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., 1873. Cloth. Book Condition: Good-Minus. Benot, L. with various engravers (steel engravings) (illustrator). 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. A true first edition, with 1873 publication notice entered at the Office of the Librarian of Congress and 1873 printed at the bottom of the title page. The title was first published serially in 1872 in the French newspaper "Le Temps" as "Le Tour du Monde en Quatre-vingt Jours." The story is the author's most famous adventure-travel book. Of the author (1828-1905), Martin Seymour-Smith said, "Verne was a boy at heart; but an ingenious and inspired boy," noting that Verne's prophetic stories, "many of them set in the future, coincided with the rise of science" (Funk & Wagnalls Guide to Modern World Literature, p. 409). This lively narrative has the endlessly inventive Phileas Fogg, usually a sedentary London gentleman, and his French valet, Jean Passparteout (literally, "go everywhere"), crossing three continents and two oceans by railway, steamers, trading vessels, yachts, carriages, sail-sledges, and other means (including an elephant) in 80 days (a feat then considered almost impossible) in order to win a time sensitive wager with Fogg's fellow club members. He is pursued by private detective Fix, who believes he is a bank robber. Nail-biting delays and death-defying feats are many. A notable addition to Fogg's entourage is a charming Hindu widow, Aouda, whom he saves from ritual immolation (and later marries in England, to his great happiness). Needless to say, the winning of the bet is a cliff-hanger, relying upon his having crossed the international date line eastbound, therefore gaining a day (Benet's Reader's Encyclopedia, pp. 52, 1076; Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature, p. 73; The Penguin Companion to European literature, pp. 797-798). This book is bound in green cloth with bright gilt illustration and decoration on the front board and spine. It is embossed with black in-fill, except on the rear embossed board. Boards are beveled. It has brown end papers with a faded bookplate on the inside front board (upon which only "New York" can be made out under magnification). The title page is embossed with the previous owner's seal. The seal has raised the paper, but has not imprinted it with ink. There is an Intact tissue guard between the frontispiece portraying Phileas Fogg and the title page. The five stitch sewn binding is shaken but holding, with signature pp. 115-126 held by one stitch and page 308 (one of 54 full-page illustrations) loose and laid-in place. The is gilt on all 315 page edges. The volume has considerable shelf wear on the spine heel and crown, as well as corners (please see photograph). Original state binding. The interior pages are unmarked with very rare soiling. A drawing by Jules Verne of his little decked bark ("Bourset Malais," the "Saint Michael") is printed opposite the first page of the Introduction. Includes, in addition to the 54 full- page drawings rendered as steel engraving plates, a smaller illustration on page 297 ("Passepartout putting out the gas-light"). This is a very rare 1873 first edition. The story remains popular and has been adapted to many formats, including a Broadway theater play produced and directed by Orson Welles and with songs by Cole Porter, a motion picture film with a star-studded international cast (1956 Academy-Award Best Picture winner), a 1989 NBC miniseries headlined by Pierce Brosnan, Julia Nickelson-Soul, and Peter Ustinov, and a SCI-FI Channel television series that premiered in fall 2000 ("The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne") (see The New York Public Library Literature Companion, p. 479). This book is a very good candidate for further conservation and rebinding. Bookseller Inventory # 004012

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: James R. Osgood,, Boston:, 1873. Hardcover. Book Condition: Better than good overall. First fully illustrated US edition. Lacks one plate. Scarce 1873 first fully illustrated US edition of Jules Verne's most popular work; this work was first issued in English in the US as an unillustrated edition, entitled 'The Tour of the World in Eighty Days' (1873). Translated by Geo. M. Towle, with an introduction by Adrien Marx. With fifty three plates, including a sketch by Jules Verne titled 'Burset Malais', The "Saint Michael", of a sailing ship. Lacks one plate at p 266 ('The cold, increased by the tremendous speed, deprived them of the power of speech'). Arthur B. Edwards notes in "Firsts" (July/August 1996) that "there is a fully illustrated Osgood octavo edition, published at the end of November, 1873, taken from the British sheets. This is titled 'Around the World in Eighty Days', and is very scarce. It seems to have had production problems that caused the spine to crack and chip when the book was read; consequently no 1873 copies have been seen in better than good condition (p. 42)." 8vo, xvi, 315pp, dark brown end papers. Gilt and black stamped salmon cloth, beveled edges. Extremities a bit rubbed; spine slightly sunned, little rubbed at edges. Internally, hinges tender but holding; the text bright and clean. We would disagree with the article in "Firsts" and suggest that this a better than good copy, even if lacking a plate. Gallagher, Mistichelli and Van Eerde A30. Taves and Michaluk V011.

Item Description: Boston: James R. Osgood and Company. 1874, 1874. Second illustrated US edition after the stultifyingly scarce withdrawn 1873 issue with all the flakey spine problems. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth gilt, lavishly embossed and aggressively bevelled, every Verne first bar one or two seemingly having been designed to serve back up use as either a bludgeoning weapon or some sort of makeshift armour. Scuffed to extremities, cloth worn to corners and with some fraying and softening to spine ends. Solid, strong and bright, lacking all the normal wobbling and splaying that occurs in books where the boards are made of wrought iron and the weight of gilt alone would sink your average submarine. Internally clean and fresh, with some staining to the prelims, including a pale splodge to the upper edge of the title page. Brown endpapers, some small chipping to the edge of the flyleaf. A thoroughly respectable copy, perhaps a touch threadbare in places but entirely capable of a few more balloon trips. Illustrated throughout as if French engravers had just been decided extra needy and been made the recipients of some sort of enormous government subsidy, page after page of illustration. There's no adventure that doesn't have its feet somewhere in Verne, and this one is probably second only to 20,000 Leagues for sheer staying power and continuous appeal. A very good copy.

This is a copy of the 5th edition from 1875, the last to appear in the highly ornate binding with gilt edges used as on the first. The 6th from 1879 is already substantially plainer. Dark green, sand-grained cloth over bevelled boards with elaborate illustration and lettering in gilt and black to front cover and spine with blind rules to lower cover. All edges gilt, light peach endpapers. Squarish 8vo with 315pp text + 54 inserted plates including tissue-guarded frontis, all present. 48pp publisher's catalogue at rear dated January 1876 noting Verne's titles up to and including The Survivors of the Chancellor (1875). Very neat professional repair to small patches of wear at head and tail of spine using matching period cloth. Original ownership inscription from 1877 on verso of frontis. Slight, vague signs of shelf wear and handling but overall an exceptionally clean and bright copy of a very scarce work in this format - one of the iconic books of the modern world.
