VERNE, JULES

AROUND THE WORD IN EIGHTY DAYS

London, Sampson Low [and others], 1873. First UK edition and the first edition in English, first printing with title dated 1873, 48pp publisher's catalogue at end dated October 1873, 8vo, frontispiece and 54 plates (complete - the plates don't match the list of illustrations, as usual), occasional light spotting/marks, bound in the original publisher's purple decorative cloth, dulled, worn at head and tail and corners, boards rubbed/soiled, inner hinges split, small area of cloth missing from base of spine. A rare example of the first printing of the first English edition of this truly iconic Verne novel - the vast majority of first edition copies have the title dated 1874, not 1873 as here
