Description :

Octavo, pp. [i-iii] iv [v] vi-viii [ix-xi] xii-xvi [1] 2-315 [316: blank], fly leaves at front and rear, 54 inserted plates with illustrations by A. de Neuville and L. Benett, plus one small illustration by Benett in the text and an integral full-page sketch of the "Saint Michael" [sic, i.e. Michel] drawn by Verne, original pictorial bevel-edged green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and black, rear panel stamped in blind, brown coated endpapers, all edges plain. First fully illustrated U.S. edition. A translation of LE TOUR DU MONDE EN QUATRE-VINGTS JOURS (1873), Verne's most popular novel. In the summer of 1873 Osgood published their first edition, THE TOUR OF THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, in a small pocket-sized format with a single illustration (Verne's sketch of his yacht, the "Saint Michel"). The first fully illustrated English-language edition was published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Low and Searle in November 1873. In November or December 1873 Osgood published their second edition of the novel which was printed in London by Gilbert and Rivington from the plates of the British Sampson Low's 1873 edition. 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. Edwards, "Collecting Jules Verne," Firsts, VI: 7-8 [July-August 1996], p. 42. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 2-154 and (1981) 1-165. Clareson, Science-Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 762. Reginald 14648. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978). Myers 54. Taves and Michaluk V011. An early copy with "Christmas 1873" gift inscription in pencil on recto of front flyleaf and owner's signature, also dated "Christmas 1873," on same. Binding slightly leaned, cloth lightly worn at spine ends and corner tips, a bright, tight very good copy. A superior copy of this book and rare in this condition. (#96607). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. État : New. abridged edition. 254 x 203 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Around the World in Eighty Days (French: Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours) is a classic adventure novel by the French writer Jules Verne, published in 1873. In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly employed French valet Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a 20,000 wager (equal to about 2 million in 2016) set by his friends at the Reform Club. It is one of Verne s most acclaimed works. Plot: Phileas Fogg is a rich British gentleman living in solitude. Despite his wealth, Fogg lives a modest life with habits carried out with mathematical precision. Very little can be said about his social life other than that he is a member of the Reform Club. Having dismissed his former valet, James Forster, for bringing him shaving water at 84 F (29 C) instead of 86 F (30 C), Fogg hires a Frenchman by the name of Jean Passepartout as a replacement. At the Reform Club, Fogg gets involved in an argument over an article in The Daily Telegraph stating that with the opening of a new railway section in India, it is now possible to travel around the world in 80 days. He accepts a wager for 20,000 (equal to about 1.6 million in 2015) from his fellow club members to complete such a journey within this time period. Accompanied by Passepartout, Fogg departs from London by train at 8:45 P.M. on October 2; in order to win the wager, he must return to the club by this same time on December 21, 80 days later. Jules Gabriel Verne ( 8 February 1828 - 24 March 1905 ) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright best known for his adventure novels and his profound influence on the literary genre of science fiction. Verne was born to bourgeois parents in the seaport of Nantes, where he was trained to follow in his father s footsteps as a lawyer, but quit the profession early in life to write for magazines and the stage. His collaboration with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel led to the creation of the Voyages extraordinaires, a widely popular series of scrupulously researched adventure novels including Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne is generally considered a major literary author in France and most of Europe, where he has had a wide influence on the literary avant-garde and on surrealism.His reputation is markedly different in Anglophone regions, where he has often been labeled a writer of genre fiction or children s books, largely because of the highly abridged and altered translations in which his novels are often reprinted. Verne has been the second most-translated author in the world since 1979, ranking between Agatha Christie and William Shakespeare.He has sometimes been called the Father of Science Fiction, a title that has also been given to H. G. Wells and Hugo Gernsback. George Makepeace Towle (August 27, 1841, Washington, D.C. - August 9, 1893, Brookline, Massachusetts) was an American lawyer, politician, and author. He is best known for his translations of Jules Verne s works, in particular his 1873 translation of Around the World in Eighty Days. N° de réf. du libraire APC9781543100884

Description du livre London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle, 1873, 1873. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine and front cover blocked in black and gold, bevelled boards, buff endpapers, gilt edges. 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. Frontispiece and 54 plates. 48pp publisher's catalogue at end, dated October 1873. First UK and first illustrated edition in English, rare with the title page dated 1873. 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). N° de réf. du libraire 108972
