The Clipper Of The Clouds, Jules Verne, Samspon Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, 1887, 234pp

Here is a first UK edition of one of Jules Verne's most advanced works - later named 'Robur The Conquerer' and based around the American Civil War..
This gloriously illustrated book features highly decorative Victorian covers and bright gilding to all edges and is a very rare item.
With bright gilt boards, this is one of the most visually impressive of Verne's first editions and the story focuses on flight in a way that only Verne could bring to life to the Victorian readership.

Only one copy is listed on Abebooks.co.uk - priced at £3,081 including P&P so my copy is really priced to sell.
A true rarity.


In Good condition
Light cover wear
Generally very good inside with period inscription.
Sadly has a good deal of loose illustrations (all present)

I'm happy to post worldwide but please contact me first to find out postage prices.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
