Publisher's full percaline binding with fir green grosgrain and "bouquets de roses" of the 3rd type. Lenègre Binder (stamped in gold at the bottom of the 1st plate). Gilt edges. Blue endpapers. Printed by Bonaventure. Ex-dono, in pencil and on the reverse of the 1st endpaper, dated January 7, 1869. First illustrated edition of the first issue (Jules Verne's name does not appear on page 1) with caption errors (pp. 25 and 32) and first single carton. Covers and spines partially faded.
