Literatur, Science-Fiction - Anzahl: 2 - Buch

Good condition copies of the "Authors Illustrated Versions", published subsequent to the original UK editions, of "From the Earth to the Moon" and its sequel "Around The Moon", illustrated English translations by Louis Mercier and Eleanor King of the French versions of Jules Verne's novels. 1st editoins thus, smaller octavo format of the original editions published by Sampson Low, Marston & Co., in 1889 (Earth to the Moon, 160 pp, 7 illustrations) and 1886 (Around the Moon, 192 pp, 9 illustrations). Both are complete with all pages and sound bindings and are in the original decorated red boards. No markings, inscriptions or damage to the text block apart from a date and price in pencil on the front fly leaf. Both feps, front and back, show marking or residue, probably from an earlier insert. There is a small tear on one illustration and a small triangular chip is missing from the base of the final pages of the first book. Pages are toned as expected for books of this age but with almost no foxing. The spine of the first book is abraded at the top and has a small chip (see photo). Both text edges are lightly soiled and the binding of the second book is cocked forward. All major faults are illustrated in the photos. A rare set, in above average condition for their age, of early editions of two of the most influential works of science-fiction of the 19th-century.
