The Field Of Ice

By Verne, Jules




It was a bold project of Hatteras to push his way to the North Pole, and gain for his country the honour and glory of its discovery. But he had done all that lay in human power now, and, after having struggled for nine months against currents and tempests, shattering icebergs and breaking through almost insurmountable barriers, amid the cold of an unprecedented winter, after having outdistanced all his predecessors and accomplished half his task, he suddenly saw all his hopes blasted.

THE FIELD OF ICE

Verne, Jules

1875. With 126 Illustrations by Riou. London and New York: George Routledge and Sons, 1875. 16 pp undated ads. Original terra-cotta cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First English Edition. This was the second and concluding volume in the "Adventures of Captain Hatteras," following A JOURNEY TO [or THE ENGLISH AT] THE NORTH POLE. Verne actually wrote these about ten years earlier, at which time they were published in French; it was not until 1874 that they were published by Osgood of Boston (in one volume), followed the next year by Routledge of London.~This copy is in terra-cotta cloth; we have also had this in green cloth, and Myers reports a copy in blue cloth (no priority). It is a bright copy, in near-fine condition (minor mottling of the cloth, a touch of wear at the lower edge). Taves & Michaluk V004; Mistichelli [etc.] A10; Myers 58 ("pictorial blue cloth").
