About This Item

Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1873. First American Edition, First Printing. First American Edition, and First Edition in English. First printing with no mention of the translator, George M. Towle, on the title-page. 291 pages plus endpapers and title page. Dark blue endpapers. Frontis illustration by Jules Verne of Le Saint Michel, his yacht. Title page in red and black ink. Roughly 4.5 by 6 inches. Bound in the publisher's green cloth with gilt lettering and illustration (same as frontis). Some ornamentation in blind. Page edges dyed red. One of the classics in the genre of children's, travel, as well as science fiction. This edition preceded the English edition. In good condition. Complete and intact, but with a lot of generalized wear. There is a tiny edge stain at top corner of a few pages. The fragile tissue paper is present. Some general wear, binding is a little cocked, the hinges are sound, some rubs and abrasion. Overall an extremely good copy of this classic. This is the First Printing. Within a few months, Osgood published a more elaborate illustrated edition with the title 'Around the World in Eighty Days'. "In an unusual twist, this American translation crossed the Atlantic for use by Sampson Low in England" (Taves and Michaluk V011). (Myers 54.)
