1874 1ed Jules Verne Meridiana Africa Adventure Voyages Illustrated

“Reality provides us with facts so romantic that imagination itself could add nothing to them.” ― Jules Verne In 1873, Scribner’s published the first authorized edition of Jules Verne’s famous ‘Meridiana’ or ‘Adventures of Three Russians and Three Englishmen in South Africa’. This book, which is part of Verne’s ‘Extraordinary Voyages,’ is “a hunting story, which aroused many a youthful sportsman’s throbbing eagerness for the chase and gave him this first knowledge and earliest enthusiasm for that heart-stirring excitement.” (Myers) This adventures story follows the story of English and Russian scientists who head to South Africa for research. While on their mission, the Crimean War begins and the researchers find themselves to be enemies of locals. This 1874 printing was unauthorized and pirated by Shepard and printed under a different title – ‘Adventures in the Land of the Behemoth’. Shepard used sheets from the British edition published by Sampson low in 1872; and unfortunately, the texts of this edition and the first authorized Scribner translation are drastically different. $550.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!

1872 BEAUTIFUL 1ed Picturesque America Illustrated Scenery Landscapes AMERICANA

‘Picturesque America’ is one of the best and most thorough works on the history of America. According to Rainey, “‘Picturesque America’ was a conspicuous presence in the popular culture of the United States in the post-Civil War years. First published as a magazine series in Appletons’ Journal, then as a subscription book, in parts, from 1872 to 1874 it reached a huge audience. Its voluminous text and over 900 pictures represented the first comprehensive celebration of the entire continental nation. By testifying to the variety, uniqueness and potential wealth of the American landscape and the advanced civilization of its cities, ‘Picturesque America’ laid the foundation for a resurgence of nationalism rooted in the homeland itself, rather than in institutions of democracy as would have been the case earlier in the century.” Edited by William Cullen Bryant, ‘Picturesque America’ was proudly displayed by Appleton and Co., at their booth at the Centennial Exhibition in 1876, displaying its beautiful binding and exquisite illustrations. $550.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!
