New and Cheaper Edition. Undated [1888]. One hundred and twenty illustrations. Original decorated brown cloth. Spine ends scuffed, a few light marks on rear board, endpapers replaced, good. Publisher's catalogue dated 1888 bound in at end. Although not acknowledged in this edition, the translation from the original French is by Mrs Cashel Hoey. A grumpy scientist is unwillingly involved in a series of fantastical adventures around the world. The novel is perhaps in part a response to (or indeed a parody of) Jules Verne's Voyages Extraordinaires.
