"Family Without a Name"  is one of my favourite from Jules Verne. After "Michel Strogoff", of course. : ) The right cover was badly remade, it was probably falling into pieces.

You can see 1920 for "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea".There is no date for "Family Without a Name", nor any edition number, but...

At the end of the second one

You can read "In preparation for 1890".So... this book is probably from 1889.From wiki "Family Without a Name (French: Famille-sans-nom) is a 1889 adventure novel by Jules Verne" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_Without_a_NameSo yes, this is probably from the first edition ever of this book.Book boner. ^o^

These are neat but I'm not fond of the phrase "book porn". :)

Gotta talk the internets slang, ya know, if you wanna be fucking read my pandda, though.

Heh, that internets slang is everywhere these days, isn't it? I'm okay with calling it pr0n. :)
