Description
1874 1ed Jules Verne Meridiana Africa Adventure Voyage Illustrated RARE Scribner



“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.



It should be noted that the text of this 1874 first Scribner edition is drastically different from the unauthorized editions; those pirated and published in Boston or London.
