“It is a great misfortune to be alone, my friends; and it must be believed that solitude can quickly destroy reason.”

― Jules Verne, The Mysterious Island

 

Jules Verne’s adventure novels are some of the most popular and famous works of literature of all time. “Mysterious Island”, originally published in 1874, is an adventure novel that was significantly influenced by ‘Robinson Crusoe’ and other ‘shipwreck’ adventures. This novel follows the story and adventures of American Civil War prisoners of war, who escaped on a balloon to an uncharted island in the South Pacific. This book is iconic as being a melding of another Verne novel, ’20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’.

 

In 1875, the first American edition appeared by Scribner’s after the original plates of Sampson Low. Sampson Low published this work in three volumes, the first of which was entitled ‘Dropped from the Clouds’ or ‘Wrecked in the Air’. This American edition of ‘Wrecked’ is considered the first authorized edition.
