Good illustrated edition of this famous Robinsonade by Jules Verne, originally published in 1882.
"Godfrey, an idle 22-year-old, lives with his uncle, the wealthy Lord William W. Kolderup. Before marrying the young and pretty Phina, he asks to undertake a two-year sea voyage. Granting his desire, his uncle sends him to visit New Zealand aboard the Dream, under the command of Captain Turcotte, with his mentor and teacher of deportment and dance, Professor T. Artelett. Unfortunately, the ship sinks not far from an island where Godfrey, shipwrecked in spite of himself, will have to learn to survive, organize his life and face the savages. Accompanied by T. Artelett, the only other survivor of the shipwreck, the jaded young man is confronted with the school of life and will discover the value of effort and the manly task of acquiring composure and courage."
