This form will search the category Literature: Science Fiction and Fantasy. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search the category Literature: Science Fiction and Fantasy. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

Port Tarascon - the Last Adventures of the Illustrious Tartarin

Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, London
1st printing. Heavy 8vo. The first UK issue in decoratively black and gilt printed steel blue cloth (later issues were plain ruled), bevel edges, top edge gilt, 359pp, portrait frontispiece, with tissue guard plus numerous illustrations in text, 32pp publishers ads at rear (dated October 1889). Though dated 1891 on the title-page Edel & Laurence (B 6b) say it was first issued in November 1890 after the US edition, a few later sources dispute this and suggest it was a few days before or simultaneous.
An uncommonly well preserved and very clean and tight near FINE copy (spine and covers faintly dusty, spine just a little tanned, cover corner tips and spine ends very slightly shelf rubbed, pages very mildly tanned). An unusually nice copy of the scarcer decoratively bound first issue.
