The American Gun Club has a complicated publishing history. This title is the Anglicized first part of the Verne sequence "De la Terre a la Lune" and "Autour de la Lune." The two parts were originally published together in French, then in one volume in English by Sampson Low in London. Scribner, Armstrong produced a one-volume edition in 1874. Then King & Baird of Philadelphia published an unauthorized issue of the first part titled "The Baltimore Gun Club." Scribner, Armstrong quickly produced this edition in competition with K&B's, containing twice the number of Illustrations. Adverising on title verso includes the full English title "From the Earth of the Moon." Myers 26. Taves & Michaluk V007.
