The Mysterious Island, Issue 3
The five castaways, having landed from a balloon on an island in the Pacific, begin their struggle for survival and the adventures that will lead them to the mysterious Captain Nemo.
Verne's remarkable novel, originally published in 1875 and by Scribners in 1918 with N.C. Wyeth's magnificent illustrations, is the latest of the Scribner Illustrated Classics to be reissued. The original canvases have been newly photographed and reproduced with exceptional fidelity for this edition, and the text has been reset in the original typeface.
