First English edition, first impression, of this Verne caper first published in French in the previous year. This is an exceptionally nice copy in the scarce green variant cloth.
Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and illustrations to spine and front in gilt, grey, black and orange, florally patterned endpapers, all edges gilt.
Illustrated title page and 45 plates.
Slight rubbing to the ends and tips, slight rubbing from the colour illustrating the front board, some faint spotting to tissue guard and minimally elsewhere, but an exceptionally smart and fresh copy, sound and generally in excellent condition.
