The Fur Country Seventy Degrees North Latitude 1873 by Jules Verne

Book # 1VQCca1wnIFo 169
Description
Antique book titled "The Fur Country, or Seventy Degrees North Latitude" by Jules Verne, translated from French by N. D'Anvers.

No copyright notice, however 1873 is noted in the dedication. I believe this to be the first edition of the English translation.

Beautifully illustrated.

Stunning condition, with minor wear. The only issue I found was one page with a tiny circle of missing paper that took a tiny circle of text off of 2 pages (see pictures).

List of Illustrations:
Mrs Joliffe served out slice after slice
The beinning of the thaw
The mouth of the Coppermine River
From this position they were able
She ran up to it
All might watch the progress of the phenomenon
Corporal Joliffe was extremely fond of him
The bear seized Kalumah by the clothes
The Lieutenant tied round their necks
Everybody started back
The lower framework was already floating
The colonists, falling on their knees, returned thanks to God
Kalumah and the bear
