INTRODUCTION

The present romance, the second in the Mysterious Island triad, was originally issued in Paris with the title of _L'Abandonne_. Jules Verne's list of stories already ran then to some twenty volumes--a number which has since grown to almost Dumasien proportions. _L'Abandonne_, like its two companion tales, ran its course as a serial through the _Magasin Illustre_ 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
