Post Verne, Jules: An Antarctic Mystery (Illustrated). v1. 14th Feb 2010

In the year 1839, Mr. Jeorling, whose geological and mineralogical research have led him to the Kerguelen sub-Antarctic archipelago in the Indian Ocean, sets sail on the "Halbrane", whose captain Len Guy is obsessed with Edgar Allan Poe's novel "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym".

In that narrative, Poe recounts the adventures of Len Guy's brother William Guy who as captain of the "Jane" was persuaded by Arthur Gordon Pym to direct an expedition to the Antarctic. The "Jane" vanished on this voyage, though Pym was still able to pass along his diary to Edgar Allen Poe.

Increasingly persuaded of the truthfulness of the tale, Mr. Jeorling encourages Captain Len Guy to pursue his brother - whom they believe may still be alive - into the Antarctic. Aside from the natural perils of the ocean, they must also face down a mutiny of the sailors on the "Halbrane".

A great adventure story, and actually a lot more typical of Verne's novels than the SF for which he is best remembered today.

I previously posted a non-illustrated version of this novel, for the Sony Reader only, back in 2007. This version is much better formatted, and I've added all the illustrations (18 in all) from a scanned edition at the Internet Archive.

The translator of this edition is Mrs. Cashel Hoey, and it was originally published in 1899. Enjoy!

Looks good.
I've got "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym" on my reader. Is there any argument in favour of reading Pym first? How much Pymology is in "An Antarctic Mystery"?

Interesting question, and one that I'm afraid I can't answer; I haven't read this book yet, or the Poe, I'm afraid.

In that case I suppose my best bet is to stick with my original reading plan, Pym first then Antarctic.
