Description
1881 Jules Verne 1st ed 800 Leagues Amazon Jangada South America French Hetzel



Unlike many of Jules Vernes other novels, Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon does not have any science fiction elements. The story takes place around Joam Garral and his family, who are forced to travel down-stream on the Amazon River using a giant timber raft before rushing to decode an encrypted letter to save Joam.



First Published in French in 1881 by Hetzel, this book was the 21st in the famed Voyages Extraordinares series. While undated, this 1881 edition features the two elephants at the top corners of the front cover, indicative of earliest Verne editions.



Note on dating: like many other Verne first editions, the title page included was issued in each edition, including later printings. The dating comes from the ads in the back of the book – note the ads in this volume advertise for the releases in the 1881-1882 print year.
