"The present romance, the second in the Mysterious Island triad, was originally issued in Paris with the title of L'Abandonne. Jules Verne's list of stories already ran them to some twenty volumes; a number which has since grown to almost Dumasien proportions. L'Abandonne, like its two companion tales, run its course as a serial through the Magasin Illustre of education and recreation, before its issue as a boy's story-book. Its success in both forms seems to have established a record in the race for popularity and a circulation in both the French and English fields of current literature." RG4

"Samuel Butler (4 or 5 December 1835 - 18 June 1902) was an iconoclastic Victorian author who published a variety of works. Two of his most famous pieces are the Utopian satire Erewhon and the posthumous novel The Way of All Flesh. He is also known for examining Christian orthodoxy, substantive studies of evolutionary thought, studies of Italian art, and works of literary history and criticism. Butler also made prose translations of The Iliad and The Odyssey which remain in use to this day. His influence on literature, such as it was, came through The Way of All Flesh, which Butler completed in the 1880s but left unpublished in order to protect his family. And yet the novel, begun in 1870 and not touched after 1885, was so modern when it was published in 1903, that it may be said to have started a new school, particularly in the use of psychoanalytical modes of thought in fiction, which "his treatment of Ernest Pontifex [the hero of Butler's novel] foreshadows."
