About this Item: 1884. Illustrated. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1884. 32 pp ads dated Sept 1883. Original grey-brown cloth decorated in black, red and cream. First British edition of Part I of one of Verne's scarcest titles. It is an odd tale, combining adventure, travel and intrigue: after Keraban the Turk takes two Dutch business associates across the Bosphorus for dinner, a small ferry tax is enacted that so enrages Keraban that he insists all three take "the long way home" -- around the perimeter of the Black Sea. He must make it home in time to arrange a marriage for his nephew, but there are those who don't want him to make it back in time.~KERABAN-LE-TETU first came out in French in 1883, quickly followed by George Munro's pirated American edition in wrappers titled THE HEADSTRONG TURK. Sampson Low published this first UK edition of GUIDARA in November 1884, followed by SCARPANTE THE SPY in April 1885; these two volumes, bound in this unusual pictorial cloth with red highlights, are exceedingly scarce today. There is a secondary binding of green cloth decorated only in black; the "second edition," issued in May 1887, is in that same secondary binding.~Condition is very good. The inner hinges (endpapers) have been discreetly reinforced with narrow strips of matching paper, and the rear cover has some minor soil; the spine ends are rubbed but not torn nor frayed, and the spine is slightly browned (as one would expect with this color cloth). This undoubtedly makes the volume sound worse than it is, for it is overall quite clean and attractive. Very scarce in this primary binding. Taves & Michaluk V025. Seller Inventory # 9492
