  • From The Earth to The Moon – Direct in 97 Hours 20 Minutes – Jules Verne

    From The Earth to The Moon – Direct in 97 Hours 20 Minutes – Jules Verne

    An early English translation published by Sampson Low, Marston et al, London in 1886.

    Translated from the French by Louis Mercier and Eleanor King. Described as the “Author’s Illustrated Edition”.

    Octavo, 160 pages plus 32 pages Publisher’s Catalogue. Seven full page illustrations. Original red cloth covered binding with black embossed decoration. Gilt title to front and nice decorative embossed image with gilt moon and red “spaceship”. All page edges gilt, very good condition with unusually clean and bright covers.

    Post American Civil War the Baltimore Gun Club had time on their hands. They decided to design and build an enormous gun (a Columbaid) to land three men (the President, his rival and a French Poet) on the Moon. A hugely influential book. Interesting that the section dealing with the calculations has some scientific merit … we like it.

    Early Jules Verne – nicely presented
