INTRODUCTION

The present romance, the second in the Mysterious Island triad, was originally issued in Paris with the title of L'Abandonné . Jules Verne's list of stories already ran then to some twenty volumes a number which has since grown to almost Dumasien proportions. L'Abandonné , like its two companion tales, ran its course as a serial through the Magasin Illustré of education and recreation, before its issue as a boy's story book. Its success in both forms seems to have established a record in the race for popularity and a circulation in both the French and English fields of current literature. The present book was translated into English by the late W. H. G. Kingston; and is printed in EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY by special exclusive arrangement with Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston & Co., Ltd.

1909
