About This Item

1879 Jules Verne 1st/1st Tribulations of Chinaman + Begum's Fortune 2in1 Hetzel

Jules Verne's adventure novels are some of the most popular and famous works of literature of all time. Known mostly for his works of science fiction, 'Voyages Extraordinaires' was Verne's largest collection of fantasy novels and stories. "Tribulations of a Chinaman in China", first published in 1879, discusses, in a satirical view, the British trading opium in China and is filled with illustrations depicting adventures, shipwrecks, and sea battles.

In addition to 'Tribulations', this volume is bound along with a first edition of "Les Cinq Cents Millions de la Begum", or 'The Begum's Fortune' – Verne's dystopian and pessimistic portrayal of developmental sciences.

Note on dating: like many other Verne first editions, the title page included was issued in each edition, including later printings. This particular edition of Verne's was published in 1879 – note the ads at the end advertising for the releases in the 1880 print year. This edition also features the two elephants at the top corners of the front cover, indicative of earliest Verne editions.
