A Journey to the Centre of the: Verne, Jules

Item Description: Scribner, Armstrong & Co, New York, 1874. Book Condition: Very good. This "scientific romance" marks the beginning of science fiction as a genre. Jules Verne was inspired by Charles Lyell's Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man (1863), and the trend away from a literal biblical account of the history of the Earth. "Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth". This is the deluxe edition, sold by subscription only, printed on heavier paper, with a superb gilt decorated pictorial binding, amongst THE SCARCEST AND MOST DESIRABLE of editions, with the terra cotta cloth and beveled edge binding. Published with 52 illustrations by Edouard Riou. 8vo, frontispiece, 413pp, ads (6pp ads undated), all edges gilt. Gilt and black stamped pictorial covers, with gilt scene of men on raft at front cover, gilt illustration of men in crystal cave, and "Scribner, Armstrong & Co." at lower spine [first state (with "Scribner, Armstrong & Co." at the spine foot, rather than the later "Scribners"]. Some light thumbing evident at margins of some pages. Spine expertly rebacked with the original cloth blending in seamlessly. Overall, a very good copy. The 1st edition was published in French in 1864 'Voyage au Centre de la Terre'; the 1st English edition appeared in 1872; Scribner Armstrong's 1st US edition came out in November 1873, though dated 1874; and late in 1874 Scribner Armstrong published this deluxe edition. Deluxe edition, sold by subscription only. Bookseller Inventory # 15543

Item Description: 1874. With Fifty-Two Illustrations by Riou. New York: Scribner Armstrong and Co., 1874. Original orange cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First American Edition (to be printed in America) of Jules Verne's second book, preceded only by FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON. The original French edition came out in 1864, and the British edition edition came out in November 1871 (dated 1872) -- a few of these copies were sent to America with a Scribner Welford title leaf. This American edition then came out in November 1873, though dated 1874; this copy bears a January 1, 1874 gift inscription from grandfather to grandson. Almost a year later Scribner Armstrong also published this title in a special edition (undated), sold by subscription, on heavy paper stock in a beautiful gilt binding with beveled edges -- which today we do see more frequently than this first American edition.~Though this tale was most-recently filmed in 2008, the most enduring version is the 1959 one starring James Mason and (cough cough) Pat Boone.~This first American edition was issued in blue, green or orange cloth, without precedence. This copy, in orange, is in bright, near-fine condition: the endpapers do have hairline cracks at the hinge but the volume is remarkably free of soil or other wear, and the plates and text are free of foxing. This is a very attractive copy of a book that has become notoriously difficult to acquire in such advantageous condition. Taves & Michaluk V002. Bookseller Inventory # 12331

Item Description: 1872. [the TRUE first American] With Fifty-two Illustrations by Riou. New York: Scribner, Welford and Company | London: Griffith & Farran, 1872. 8 pp undated ads [G&F, in sterling]. Original orange cloth decorated in black and gilt. First British Edition (and first edition in the English language) -- this being a copy of THE HITHERTO-UNKNOWN AMERICAN ISSUE. Griffith & Farran of London first published this science fiction tale in English in November 1871 (but post-dated it 1872); the first edition printed in America, using this same translation, has long been known to be the one by Scribner Armstrong & Co., published in late 1873 (and so dated). Griffith & Farran's first edition was priced at an astronomical seven pounds per copy -- which may be why today it is, in our experience, THE scarcest British edition of any Jules Verne book.~ The present copy is from that first edition by Griffith & Farran -- with the G&F decorative binding (erroneously claiming 53 illustrations, disagreeing with the title page's correct 52) and the G&F ads. However, what sets this copy apart is that it has a cancel title leaf, on which the publisher is "New York: Scribner, Welford and Company | London: Griffith & Farran", followed by the date 1872.~Charles Welford first went to London in 1864 to begin buying English books for Charles Scribner (as his London agent); he would arrange with a London publisher to have a small number of copies of a British novel exported to America, which copies would bear a cancel title leaf reading (in 1871) "Scribner, Welford and Company". (It would be in 1872 that "Scribner Armstrong & Co." was formed -- and "Scribner Welford & Armstrong" for books imported from London; in mid-1878 Armstrong retired, and the firms' names changed to "Charles Scribner's Sons" and "Scribner & Welford" -- the latter of which continued to import books (such as G. A. Henty's) until the International Copyright Act was passed in 1891, making such importation no longer necessary.)~One other Verne book was imported into America bearing Welford's name -- MERIDIANA, in 1873; it is estimated that as few as 50 copies of that title were imported, as it is an extremely scarce book. Inasmuch as NO other copy of the "Welford" JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH has surfaced until now, 50 copies would clearly be on the high side of any estimate, with 10 or 12 being quite possible.~This copy is bound in orange cloth (green was also used for the G&F edition, but we don't know if any "Welford" copies were bound in that color). The volume appears quite clean and bright, though it has been recased in its original binding, with newer orange cloth added in behind (in effect providing new strong joints); the original endpapers are present, and all 52 plates are present. Taves & Michaluk V002 (not citing the existence of American copies such as this). Bookseller Inventory # 12525
