[Africa] A Floating City/The Blockade Runners by Jules Verne. Illustrations by Férat. Paris, Bibliothèque d'Éducation et de Récréation, J. Hetzel Éditeur, (ca 1877). Large single in-8°. Publisher's full carmine red cardboard "with tulips" of the 2nd type. Spine with six boxes. No mention of the binder (probably Engel). Edges gilt. Lemon yellow endpapers. Printed by Gauthier-Villars. First illustrated edition (completed 758-72). Covers and corners very skilfully restored. Some very rare foxing. Otherwise a fine copy of this title in a cardboard binding that we know to be extremely rare. Interior almost perfect. A perhaps unique copy, like many of its "similar"! Here is, once again, an unknown title by Jauzac in this binding. For more details, we refer you to the file of lot n°5 in this same catalogue.
