Item Details
Description
1872 French ed Jules Verne Meridiana South Africa Adventure Voyages Illustrated

“In a very real sense, Jules Verne is one of the pioneers of the space age.”

― Frank Borman, Daytona Beach Morning Journal

A rare early issue of Jules Verne’s ‘Adventures of Three Russians and Three Englishmen in South Africa’ or ‘Meridiana’. 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 edition is charmingly illustrated with more than 50 engravings and was printed by Hetzel.

This adventure 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.
