|ALBERT ROBIDA - THE ADVENTURES OF SATURNIN FARANDOUL
Pirates! Mummies! Cannibals! Intelligent Apes! Samurais! Cossacks! And even Saturnians! Meet Saturnin Farandoul and his companions as they travel the Earth and beyond in a series of wild and picaresque adventures!
Of all the authors who followed in the footsteps of Jules Verne, the most important was Albert Robida (1848-1926), a writer-artist who also became the founding father of science fiction illustration. Robida wrote and illustrated The Adventures of Saturnin Farandoul (1879), a mammoth, riotous and rollicking homage to Verne in which the indomitable Farandoul, raised by apes on a Pacific Island, teams up with Captain Nemo to conquer Australia, battles with Phileas Fogg in the American Civil War, meets Hector Servadac in orbit around Saturn, steals a white elephant from Michel Strogoff in Siberia and challenges Captain Hatteras at the North Pole.
ILLUSTRATED WITH OVER 150 ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS BY ROBIDA. COVER BY CHRISTINE CLAVEL.
