“In a very real sense, Jules Verne is one of the pioneers of the space age.”

Frank Borman, Daytona Beach Morning Journal, 1969.

 

A rare, late 19th-century printing of Jules Verne’s “Texar’s Revenge, or, North Against South.” Known mostly for his novels of science-fiction and adventure, Verne wrote this book because of his interest in the American Civil War and slavery. Even though, Verne’s lack of knowledge regarding the Civil War was evident in this book, it still spawned controversy in France and in America.

 

This printing includes the 85 charming illustrations of Leon Benett and was published with the two-elephant embossing on the front cover; indicative of the earliest Verne-Hetzel printings.
