Paris : Hetzel, et Cie, [ca. 1881] - 1881 Jules Verne A Captain at Fifteen Dick Sand SLAVERY Africa Voyages Hetzel “If the name Dick had been given to the little orphan, it was because it was the name of the charitable passer-by who had picked him up two or three hours after his birth. As to the name Sand, it was attributed to him in remembrance of the lace where he had been found.” ¬ – Jules Verne, Dick Sand Known mostly for his works of science fiction, this Jules Verne novel contains no inventions or marvels, but is simply a story of moving scenes of travel and African exploration and zoology.
