This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1889 edition. Excerpt: ... THE WRESTLERS OF RAGUSA. CHAPTER I. PESCADE AND MATIFOU. FIFTEEN years after the events related in the. prologue of this history, on the 24th of May, 1882, there was a holiday at Ragusa, one of the chief towns of the Dalmatian provinces. Dalmatia is a narrow tongue of land lying between the northern Dinaric Alps, Herzegovina, and the Adriatic. It is just large enough to hold a population of from four to five hundred thousand, with a little squeezing. A fine race are these- Dalmatians: sober in an arid country, where arable land is rare, proud amid the many political vicissitudes they have undergone, haughty towards Austria which gained them by the Treaty of Campo Formio in 1815, and honest towards all; so much so that the country can be called, according to a beautiful expression reported by M. Yriarte, "The land of the lockless doors." Dalmatia is divided into four circles, and these are subdivided into districts; the circles are those of Zara, Spalato, Cattaro, and Ragusa. The governor-general resides at Zara, the capital of the province, where the Diet meets of which many members form part of the Upper House at Vienna. Times are much changed since the sixteenth century, when Uscoques--fugitive Turks at war with the Mussulmans as well as the Christians, with the Sultan as well as the Venetian Republic--were the-terror of the sea. But the Uscoques have disappeared, and traces of them are no longer to be found in Carniola. The Adriatic is now as safe as any other part of the poetical Mediterranean. Ragusa, or rather the small state of Ragusa, was a republic even before Venice. It was only in 1808 that a decree of Napoleon united it, the year following, to the kingdom of Illyria and made of it a duchy for Marshal Marmont. In the ninth...

In "Mathias Sandorf" we have certainly a most pretentious volume containing over a hundred illustrations, in which the most tragic events of this most tragic story are graphically portrayed. Indeed so numerous and effective are the illustrations that it is almost possible to follow the bent of the story without the aid of the letter-press. On this occasion the localities to which we are introduced are chiefly the towns and cities of Southern Europe and the islands of the Mediterranean, while the romance in which they are made to play a part, abounds in all those elements of mystery, adventure, and hair-breadth escape by which the author knows so well how to engage and maintain the interest of his reader. As is common to most of Jules Verne's works, the marvels of science are made the medium for some of the most effective incidents in the story, and we are not altogether surprised when at the conclusion of this most exciting narrative, the islet of Kencraf, with the three villains of the story, is blown into space by the accidental pressure of the foot on an electric wire.

About the Book: Jules Verne, the Father of Modern Science Fiction, is indeed immortal and eternally young across three centuries. In "Masters of the Sea: The Adventures of Jules Verne s Mathias Sandorf," we pay tribute to Verne, who inspired pioneers throughout the world for generations. Here, we take Verne s ultimate prediction of communication with our friends of the watery deep to its outer limits. In fact, communication with these friends was heralded throughout the world when, in 2003, America used dolphins to clear mines designed to hamper the invasion from the port of Unn Qasr in southern Iraq. For the first time, a pioneering research Preface underscores why and how Verne proclaimed Mathias Sandorf his greatest epic science fiction masterpiece. His dedication of the original work claims I tried to make of Mathias Sandorf my Monte Cristo of extraordinary science fiction adventures. Verne drew his Austrian heroic character, Dr. Mathias Sandorf, from the reality of the battleground of Germany s conquests of Austria and France during the 30-year period prior to World War I. About the Author: George J. Rios, M.P.A., Ph.D. has distinguished himself with nine Public Service appointments including three White House assignments spanning five presidential administrations and is a former New York City Commissioner. He renders a unique service to science-fiction aficionados with his scholarly researched and adapted translation of Jules Verne s preeminent novel.

Mathias Sandorf (Die Rache des Grafen Sandorf) ist ein Roman des französischen Autors Jules Verne. Die Handlung beginnt 1866 in Triest. Die mittellosen Gauner Sarcany aus Tripolis und Zirone finden auf einem ihrer Spaziergänge durch die Stadt eine Brieftaube, die eine Geheimbotschaft befördert. Sarcany will sehen, ob sie aus der Botschaft Kapital schlagen können. Sie lassen die Taube von einem Kirchturm aus frei und verfolgen sie mit den Augen bis zu ihrem Taubenschlag. Dieser befindet sich in einem Haus, das dem Grafen Ladislaus Szathmáry, einem ungarischen Adligen, gehört. Graf Szathmáry plant, mit seinen Freunden, dem Professor Stefan Báthory und dem Grafen Mathias Sandorf in Ungarn, ihrer Heimat, einen Volksaufstand gegen die Herrschaft Österreichs anzuzetteln. Mit Hilfe des dalmatinischen Bankiers Silas Toronthal lässt sich Sarcany von Graf Sandorf, der sich im Hause des Grafen Szathmáry aufhält, als Buchhalter einstellen. Im Schreibtisch des Grafen Szathmáry findet er die Schlüsselschablone zur Entzifferung der Geheimbotschaft. Sarcany und Toronthal entschlüsseln die Geheimbotschaft, die den geplanten Aufstand betrifft.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

An exploration of how Jules Verne used his writings to encrypt important Masonic and Rosicrucian secrets and sacred symbolism • Investigates Verne’s connections to the prominent secret societies of his time: Freemasons, Golden Dawn, Angelic Society, and Rosicrucians • Reveals how certain of Verne’s works hold the key to deciphering the Rennes-le-Château mystery • Explores Verne’s relations with other authors whose works reveal similar esoteric influence: George Sand, Gaston Leroux, Bram Stoker, and Maurice Leblanc Prolific author and pioneer of the science fiction novel, Jules Verne also possessed a hidden side that was encrypted into all his works--his active participation in the occult milieu of late-nineteenth-century France. Among the many esoteric secrets to be found are significant clues to the Rennes-le-Château mystery, including the location of a great treasure in the former Cathar region of France and the survival of the heirs to the Merovingian dynasty. Verne’s books also reveal Rosicrucian secrets of immortality, and some are constructed, like Mozart’s The Magic Flute, in accordance with Masonic initiation. The passe-partout to Verne’s work (the skeleton key that is also the name of Phileas Fogg’s servant in Around the World in Eighty Days) lies in the initiatory language he employed to inscribe a second or even third layer of meaning beneath the main narrative, which is revealed in his skilled use of word play, homonyms, anagrams, and numerical combinations. The surface story itself is often a guide that tells the reader outright what he or she should be looking for. Far from innocuous stories for children, Verne’s work reveals itself to be rich with teachings on symbolism, esoteric traditions, sacred geography, and the secret history of humanity.

At the Weldon Institute in Philadelphia, a mob of zealous balloon enthusiasts plans to conquer the sky in a state-of-the-art dirigible. When a stranger, the mysterious Robur, declares that the future belongs not to balloons but to heavier-than-air flying machines, the Institute scornfully dismisses the idea. But Robur demands vengeance—and has a unique flying machine that will allow him to take it. By turns an impassioned argument for aviation, a wild proto-steampunk adventure, and a jubilant celebration of the dream of flight, Robur the Conqueror ranks among Jules Verne’s most iconic and influential works. Its technological speculations, including the unforgettable aircraft Albatross, are a vibrant snapshot of nineteenth-century scientific innovation. This, the first complete English translation of Verne’s 1886 novel, includes an insightful introduction, explanatory chapter notes, never-before-published glimpses of Verne’s original manuscript, all the first-edition illustrations by Léon Benett, and an up-to-date Verne biography and primary and secondary bibliography. It is an essential new edition of a seminal science fiction classic.
