From the Earth to the Moon


A fine first English edition of this keystone work by Jules Verne, scarce in the publisher's original cloth binding thus. This first English edition was the first to be translated from the French and is uncommon, the American edition appearing the following year. It comprises translations of two separate books, De la Terre a La Lune and Autour de la Lune. It was also later issued under the title The Baltimore Gun Club. The deluxe cloth bindings were generally issued with bevelled boards and all edges gilt as found on this copy.
