Around the World in 30 Days; Or, the Greatest Trip Ever Made
A thrilling science fiction adventure by an author later to distinguish himself for his much-beloved stories about collies, beginning with LAD: A DOG (1919). Advanced transportation technology allows Terhune's heroes to complete Phileas Fogg's record-setting journey in less than half the time. Written to capitalize on the enormous popularity of the work of Jules Verne, who had died nine years earlier, the novel was serialized in five installments in Street & Smith's TOP NOTCH MAGAZINE between February and April, 1914, and issued as a pulp novel in the publisher's Adventure Library shortly afterwards. Terhune's popularity after the publication of LAD led Street & Smith to reissue the novel in 1925, and when copies of this title surface it is generally the reprint: the first edition is very seldom encountered. Read to pieces by generations of youthful admirers, few copies of this fragile publication have survived. A very good copy in illustrated wrappers. Housed in a custom chemise and clamshell case.
