MONDIAL AVENTURES 29 / ALBUM GIGANTE 39
"LES AVENTURES DE SIR ARTHUR GORDON PYM" /
"A NARRATIVA DE SIR ARTHUR GORDON PYM"
(IN COLOR w/ English Translation / Part 4)
The Société Parisienne d'Édition or SPE, was a French publisher that existed under various names from the end of the 19th Century.
MONDIAL AVENTURES ("World Adventures") was their own version of Gilberton's CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED. The series ran 30 titles from 1954 to 1959, including the works of such notable writers as Fenimore Cooper, Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas and Robert Louis Stevenson; oddly enough, especially given it was a French company, they didn't include Jules Verne in their run. However, they did one story by Edgar Allan Poe-- his ONLY full-length novel!
I'm including a bonus gallery of illustrations by various artists over the decades.
