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: James R. Osgood, 1873. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First American edition, with the jellyfish design on the front board. Octavo, original rust colored cloth. With "The End" printed on page 303, illustrated with 109 plates, including two maps, with jellyfish on the front board, and the incorrect use of the word "Sea" in the title on front board. Although the reason for the scarcity is unknown, it is speculated that most of the Osgood copies were destroyed in the Great Boston Fire. Some of Verne's fiction has also become a fact: his submarine Nautilus predated the first successful power submarine by a quarter century, and his spaceship predicted the development a century later. The first all-electric submarine, built in 1886, was named Nautilus in honor of Verne's vessel. The first nuclear-powered submarine, launched in 1955, was named Nautilus, too. The film version was produced by Walt Disney in 1954 and directed by Richard Fleischer, won an Oscar for its special effects. Some wear on top of spine, but not recased and one of the best copies seen in recent years. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Firsts Magazine featured a blue copy of this edition on its cover in 1996, running an article raving that this is the "rarest milestone title in the science fiction genre, since it is known only by a handful of extant copies, perhaps 10 to 15." However, based on our experience, this is an exaggeration of its rarity. Still it is certainly a rare and important first US edition, especially in this condition. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 1511037

Contemporary gift inscription from the British antiquary and poet Thomas Francis Dillon Croker FSA FRGS (1831–1912), "With affectionate regards from T. F. Dillon Croker to Josephine Emily Bolton, Christmas 1873" on the front free endpaper verso. Spine slightly darkened, extremities rubbed, two short nicks at head of spine, a little scattered foxing, but an excellent copy.

This Sampson Low edition was published in November 1873, but the overwhelming majority of copies have the title dated 1874, in line with usual contemporary practise for books published for the Christmas market. The binding was issued in a number of variant colours: blue, green, red, and purple. The novel was first published in French in 1873 as Le Tour du monde en quatre-vingt jour, from which James R. Osgood of Boston published an unillustrated translation in July 1873, under the title The Tour of the World in Eighty Days. The translator George Makepeace Towle (1841–1893) was an American lawyer and politician. "In an unusual twist, this American translation crossed the Atlantic for use by Sampson Low in England" (Taves and Michaluk). Bookseller Inventory # 108972

Although the reason for the scarcity is unknown, it is speculated that most of the Osgood copies were destroyed in the Great Boston Fire. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. "Twenty Thousand Leagues owed much to the exploits of the huge experimental French submarine Le Plongeur and to the work of Verne’s friend Jacques-François Conseil, who developed a steam-driven submarine and whose surname Verne gave to Professor Arronax’s servant in the story" (Carpenter & Prichard, 557). Verne combined science and invention with fast-paced adventure. Some of Verne's fiction has also become a fact: his submarine Nautilus predated the first successful power submarine by a quarter century, and his spaceship predicted the development a century later. The first all-electric submarine, built in 1886, was named Nautilus in honor of Verne's vessel. The first nuclear-powered submarine, launched in 1955, was named Nautilus, too.

Item Description: James osgood, boston, 1873. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. The novel was originally serialized from March 1869 through June 1870 in Pierre-Jules Hetzel's periodical, the Magasin d'Éducation et de Récréation. The deluxe illustrated edition, published by Hetzel in November 1871, included 111 illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and Édouard Riou.[1] The book was highly acclaimed when released and still is now; it is regarded as one of the premiere adventure novels and one of Verne's greatest works, along with Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth. The description of Nemo's ship, called the Nautilus, was considered ahead of its time, as it accurately describes features on submarines, which at the time were very primitive vessels. Thus, the book has been able to age well because of its scientific theories, unlike some of Verne's other works, like Journey to the Center of the Earth, which are not scientifically accurate and serve more simply as adventure novels. This is the very rare true all original American first and one of a handful that remains to this day. In green boards with gilt inlays and brown end papers this has the publisher Osgood on the spine and "the End" as the last words. A better copy than what is usually found which makes this one of the rarest of the rare. Bookseller Inventory # 1000004517

Original terra-cotta cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, with the publisher's printed dust-jacket. The book is very good with some light mottling to the spine cloth, light wear at the corners, internally clean; the jacket is about near fine with a touch of wear at the spine tips and corners; Osgood was the first American firm to publish this Verne title in both a small unillustrated format in July 1873 and a fully illustrated version (from British sheets) in November of the same year. In March of 1876 Osgood sold at auction the plates and remainders of its Verne books and Porter & Coates paid $410 for the plates of the illustrated version, along with 310 sets of sheets at cost, and printed an edition from those plates in December of 1876; though not mentioned in Taves & Michaluk, it is probable Porter & Coates ran off one or more printings between then and 1880. We have dated this copy circa 1878, based on the rear-panel ad for the Fireside Encyclopedia, which was issued near the end of that year; viii, 315, frontis portrait and plates pages.

Item Description: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, London, 1888. Hardcover. 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: London - Sampson Low, Marston and Co., Ltd., 1914. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. A scarce first UK edition of Jules Verne's dark science fiction novel. In good order, and a particularly clean copy -this work is notorious for heavy foxing due to the paper used. This is one of the last novels by French pioneer science fiction writer, Jules Verne, and is a sequel to Robur the Conqueror. At the time Verne wrote the novel, his health was failing, and Master of the World is a black novel, filled with the fear of the coming of tyrants like the novel's villain, Robur, and totalitarianism. With a colourfully illustrated front board and spine, showing the Terror. With numerous illustrations by Georges Roux. Condition: Inoriginal pictorial cloth coveredbinding. Externally, sound with slight shelfwear and bumping to extremities. Slight straining to front hinge. Internally, generally firmly bound. Closed tear to gutter of one page. Generally bright with the odd spot and handling mark, mostly to first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD. Bookseller Inventory # 022718

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

The Steam House (French: La maison à vapeur) is an 1880 Jules Verne novel recounting the travels of a group of British colonists in the Raj in a wheeled house pulled by a steam-powered mechanical elephant.

The book takes place in the aftermath of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 against British rule, with the passions and traumas aroused still very much alive among Indians and British alike.
