ADVENTURES IN THE LAND OF THE BEHEMOTH
by
JULES VERNE
ILLUSTRATED BY FERAT
Translated from the French.

BOSTON: Henry L. Shepard & Co., N. D., circa 1874 [published date: 1874]. Rare First American Edition (pirated by Shepard), published on the same day as Scribner Armstrong's authorized American edition titled MERIDIANA. 8vo. 7.5" x 6" Inches. (LxB). Pp. iv, 190 pages. Bound in fine original publisher's gilt decorated red cloth binding, with gilt & black lettering on front cover & spine. This tale of African adventure was initially published in France in 1872, as AVENTURES DE TROIS RUSSES ET DE TROIS ANGLAIS DANS L'AFRIQUE AUSTRALE, and then near the end of that year Sampson Low's British edition came out, titled MERIDIANA: "The Adventures of Three Englishmen and Three Russians in South Africa". Scribner Armstrong's edition came out on May 23, 1874, the same day as this pirated edition by Shepard. Shepard's has the much more attractive binding of the two (with open-mouthed hippo on both the front cover and spine), but has an altered translation and less-than-sharp illustrations. Scribner Armstrong would counter with a cheaper version of the book, complete with a cautionary note to the public about buying "pirated" editions of Verne's works. A classic work. There are numerous close-up pictures of the contents given below; please click on them for a detailed description (See Scans below). Please take some time to view the 50+ pictures in detail, in order to gain a full idea of the contents and condition.

Plot Synopsis:

Three Englishman (Colonel Everest, Sir John Murray and William Emery) and three Russians (Matthew Strux, Nicholas Palander and Michael Zorn) and their guide, a bushman named Mokoum, set out to measure the arc of a meridian in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa. Everything is going well, until war is declared between England & Russia.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

A Journey to the Centre of the Earth (French: Voyage au centre de la Terre, also translated under the titles Journey to the Centre of the Earth and A Journey to the Interior of the Earth) is a classic 1864 science fiction novel by Jules Verne. The story involves a German professor (Otto Lidenbrock in the original French,[1] Professor Von Hardwigg in the most common English translation[2]) who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the centre of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel (Harry[2]), and their guide Hans descend into an extinct Icelandic volcano, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Ita
