Overview

The present romance, the second in the Mysterious Island triad, was originally issued in Paris with the title of L'Abandonn�. Jules Verne's list of stories already ran then to some twenty volumes�a number which has since grown to almost Dumasien proportions. L'Abandonn�, like its two companion tales, ran its course as a serial through the Magasin Illustr� of education and recreation, before its issue as a boy's story-book. Its success in both forms seems to have established a record in the race for popularity and a circulation in both the French and English fields of current literature.
