[Polar Lands] The Sphinx of the Ice by Jules Verne. Illustrations by Georges Roux. Paris, Bibliothèque d'Éducation et de Récréation, J. Hetzel et Cie, sd (1897). Large double in-8°. Publisher's full percaline polychrome boards "with golden globe" of the 4th type. Engel Binder. Gilt edges. Blue endpapers. Printed by Gauthier-Villars. Catalogue "Y" for 1897-1898. Original illustrated edition and second board. Discreet wetness in the title cartouche on the 1st plate. Otherwise, a beautiful copy, perfectly natural! Here is a very exceptional piece: The Sphinx of the Mirrors with the first plate in full and not in the yoke. We have been looking for it for ages, but it is only the second copy that we have had, that's how rare it is !
