Description:
1874 1ed Jules Verne Behemoth Meridiana Africa Adventure Voyages Illustrated

"Reality provides us with facts so romantic that imagination itself could add nothing to them."
― Jules Verne

In 1873, Scribner's published the first authorized edition of Jules Verne's famous 'Meridiana' or 'Adventures of Three Russians and Three Englishmen in South Africa'. This book, which is part of Verne's 'Extraordinary Voyages,' is
"a hunting story, which aroused many a youthful sportsman's throbbing eagerness for the chase and gave him this first knowledge and earliest enthusiasm for that heart-stirring excitement." (Myers)


This adventures story follows the story of English and Russian scientists who head to South Africa for research. While on their mission, the Crimean War begins, and the researchers find themselves to be enemies of locals.

This 1874 printing was unauthorized and pirated by Shepard and printed under a different title – 'Adventures in the Land of the Behemoth'. Shepard used sheets from the… Read More

Trumansburg, NY: Out of Step Press. Fine with no dust jacket. 2016. Numbered Edition; First Printing. Pamphlet. The author's non-linear poem about the billeting of soldiers in civilian homes in wartime. Copy 89 of a limited edition of 250. Folded into the form of a letter, the work was letterpress printed in wraps of handmade "combat paper" made from military uniforms. The author says: "Some time ago-maybe a year, maybe two?
