Description: "SPHINX OF ICE . . . IS THE CONTINUATION OF THE ADVENTURES OF ARTHUR GORDON PYM" VERNE, JULES. Autograph Letter Signed, to "Dear Sir," in French, listing his works recently completed or in prospect, including An Antarctic Mystery. 1 page, 12mo, with integral blank; faint toning at folds. Amiens, 18 June 1897

Notes: ". . . I have in the course of publication in the Magazine of Education, of which the 1st volume is going to appear, a novel, titled the Sphinx of Ice, and which is perhaps of a nature to interest to the Americans, since it is the continuation of the Adventures of Arthur Gordon Pym of their great poet Edgar Poe. . . . I have dedicated it to my friends of America. I have in preparation a novel in 2 volumes, that will have . . . all the territory of the United States, a novel that will not be published before two years. Finally I have a few other volumes that are completed, all returning to the style of the Extraordinary Voyages. . . ."
