The Master of the World. A Tale of Mystery and Marvel.
London: Sampson Low, Marston and Co 1914 - FIRST UK EDITION. Classic adventure novel. Octavo, pp.317; [1], blank; [1], imprint; [1], blank. Complete, with 30 illustrations after Georges Roux (Taves and Michaluk erroneously call for 36). Original pictorial green cloth covers depicting 'The Terror' in flight. Internally very clean, covers somewhat aged with some rubbing and marking, plain rear cover soiled, gilt lettering to spine all but tarnished and gone (traces remain, proving gilt not colour blocking). Nonetheless, a serviceable copy of a rare and late Verne first, predating the Lippincott edition which used these UK sheets. Taves and Michaluk V054 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
