This rare book is available from www.lulu.com/choptank-press for $70.
The Will of an Eccentric is one of the last of Verne's novels and the last to be published in English during his lifetime (1900). Although the characters are all American and the story takes place entirely within the United States, it was never published here and this is the first US publication of this work. Six characters play a Monopoly-like game moving around the US on public transportation to win a prize. Available only for thousands of dollars from antiquarian booksellers, it is now available in this fully illustrated retro version from the Choptank Press with an "Afterword" by noted Verne scholar Dr. Brian Taves.
Completely illustrated with 59 illustrations and an Afterrword by Brian Taves, noted Verne scholar.
A map of the board game is included.
