Price : US $33.00
Here's a very nice early reprint edition of The Desert of Ice, the 2nd part of Verne's the Adventures of Captain Hatteras, a tale of bloody adventure at the top of the world. Published by Winston (on spine, H.T. Coates on title page), this book is undated but appears to be from about 1910. 206 pages. This book has the 126 illustrations by Riou that appeared in the first edition. Publishers maroon cloth is elaborately decorated in foliage design with a paste down of a woman on the front board. Titles in red on front board and in gilt on spine. See my other auctions for the 1st part of this story.
You probably saw Ebay item #360143244437, the same book which sold for $105! And that was a rough copy.
Condition is near fine with almost no exterior wear. Inside the book is very clean, however both hinges have been neatly reinforced with tape.
A wonderful copy of a classic novel by Jules Verne!
This is an early copy of this very desirable and classic book!
Would make a great addition to any collection or a great gift!
