JOURNEY TO THE NORTH POLE. With 129 illustrations by Riou
London and New York: George Routledge and Sons, 1875. First English Edition. With a great profusion of illustrations throughout, all by Riou. 8vo, publisher’s original forest green cloth, pictorially decorated in black and gilt on the spine and upper cover. iv, 315. A pleasing, well preserved and attractive copy, quite fine but for some light shelfwear to the foot of the spine, very light cracking to inner hinge, gilt in good order all over, the cloth quite clean and generally free from rubbing. RARE FIRST EDITION. THE TRUE ENGLISH FIRST WITH THE DATE PRINTED ON THE TITLE PAGE. The book was actually published by Routledge in October of 1874 though they imprinted an 1875 date onto the title page. The book first appeared in France in 1865 and Routledge published the book with two different covers, one reading as this, and the other as THE ENGLISH AT THE NORTH POLE. Rare in first edition format, especially in the green cloth (Meyers mentions only blue and red).
