A Journey to the Centre (Center) of the Earth by Jules Verne, Scribner Armstrong & Co., New York, 1874

Product Description:

"A Journey to the Centre of the Earth" by Jules Verne. Rare 1st American Edition, in original blue hardbound cloth with black and gilded tooling, 384 pages, 52 illustrations by Riou, published by Scribner Armstrong & Co., New York, 1874. Very hard to find this original 1st edition in this condition. This first American edition was issued in blue, green or orange cloth, without precedence. This copy, in blue, is in bright, fine condition with some edge wear to the binding as pictured and very minor cover wear. Interior secure and intact including tissue page covering illustration.

This is the first American Edition of Jules Verne's second book, preceded only by "Five Weeks in a Balloon". The original French edition of "A Journey to the Centre of the Earth" came out in 1864. The British edition edition came out in November 1871 (dated 1872). This American edition then came out in November 1873, though dated 1874. About a year later Scribner Armstrong also published this title sold by subscription in a special edition (undated), on heavy paper stock in a fine gilt binding with beveled edges. This special edition is more easily found today than this scarce 1st American edition.
