From The Earth To The Moon Direct and Round the Moon.

London: George Routledge and Sons, 1877. [Science Fiction] NEW EDITION, first thus. Octavo (18 x 12cm), pp.318 [34]. With an illustrated frontispiece. Adverts dated August 1875. Publisher's green cloth with black and gilt titles and decoration to spine and upper. Yellow-coated endpapers. Toned to edges, with some minor repairs to rear hinge, otherwise a clean copy. Just a little light wear to cloth, and a hint of toning to spine. Very good. Another splendid example of Mr. Verne's imaginary sweep, including a giant space-gun, a bullet-spaceship furnished like a high class railway carriage, and a bunch of stalwart chaps careering round in space dressed in frock coats surrounded by an orbiting cloud of broken bottles, food wrappers and dead dogs. All in a day's work for Mr. Verne, although he may have broken his golden rule here and left out either pirates or giant steam powered elephants. Preceded by another translation first published in London in 1873, and 1874 in New York. Item #67363
