A JOURNEY TO THE NORTH POLE. Jules Verne.

A JOURNEY TO THE NORTH POLE.

With 129 Illustrations by Riou. London and New York: George Routledge and Sons, 1875. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt.

First English Edition (this tale had first been published in French in 1866, as LES ANGLAIS AU POLE NORD). This volume comprises the first half of "The Voyages and Adventures of Captain Hatteras"; the second half is THE FIELD OF ICE. (The 1874 American edition by Osgood, all in one volume, was the first edition in English.) Routledge re-issued this first title a little later in 1875 as THE ENGLISH AT THE NORTH POLE.~This copy is bound in green pictorial cloth (Myers mentions only blue and red); it is in fine, bright condition -- the only flaw being some flaking away of the front cover gilt. Taves & Michaluk V004; Myers p. 65; also see Mistichelli A16. Item #8714

Price: $650.00
