The Tour of the World in Eighty Days” showcases Jules Verne’s imaginative storytelling and his knack for blending scientific knowledge with literary creativity. This classic, 19th-century adventure novel follows Phileas Fogg and his valet, Passepartout as they race to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days. Published initially in French in 1872, the novel has since become one of Verne’s most celebrated and beloved works.

 

This specific printing is quite unique as it is part of Hurst and Company’s pirated “American Boys Series,” that mimicked the cover art of Boston-based Lee and Shepherd’s series of the same name. Additionally, the title page credits Jules Verne for “The Texar Vengeance,” which was a variation of George Munro’s title of his infamous pirated edition of Verne’s 1887 work “North Against South”. Today this specific printing has become highly rare with less than 25 known copies in recorded existence worldwide! This is largely attributed to the short print run of the series as well as the utilization of cheaper materials during production. A fascinating collector’s item!
