Captain Antifer.
London: Samson Low and Co., 1895., 1895. FIRST HARDBACK EDITION (November 1895), following a serial appearance in Boy's Own magazine and a softcover edition by Fenno of New York, who published their cloth-bound edition in the same month (no priority established). Crown octavo, pp.iv; 319; [1], imprint. Publisher's original red cloth blocked in gilt and colours, floral patterned endpapers, all edges gilt. Copies are also noted in blue and green cloth, without precedence. Copiously illustrated with superb engraved illustrations throughout. Internally clean, gift inscription from Xmas 1895 to flyleaf, spine sunned and a little frayed to crown. A very good copy indeed. An elusive Verne title from Sampson Low being much less common than the US equivalent. A treasure-hunt yarn from the master of the nautical adventure novel.
