Published with the Following response from Scribner Armstrong:

"The American Gun Club is simply a reprint of a fragment of Jules Verne's popular work From [the] Earth to the Moon. It is issued in this form to meet an unauthorized reprint, under a very similar name, of this precise section of the work mentioned. The American Gun Club contains all the letterpress and double the number of illustrations of the unauthorized edition, and is published at one-third less. In the regular edition of From the Earth to the Moon and a Trip Around It this section has 40 illustrations, of which but 24 are given in The American Gun Club. The illustrations in The American Gun Club are printed from electrotypes taken from the original wood-cuts in Paris."

Dustjacket and cover shown

This appears to be the first edition of this omnibus which was reprinted many times

The Dustjacket flap reads:
"Every Uncle should buy at least six copies of this book, one for himself and five for all his neices and nephews. For as a writer of pure adventure, of exciting narrative and hairbreadth escape, Verne has never been surpassed. Most of his predictions in the four books contained in this volume have already been fulfilled except, of couorse the trip to the moon (and rockets are now being built to accomplish this). The best of his stories are included in this one volume. With maps, endpapers and a frontispiece for each tale in two colors by Helene Carter."

* The Dustjacket says Jules Verne Omnibus
& the Book says Omnibus Jules Verne like the previous Lippincott edition.

The Dustjacket flap reads:
"Four complete novels are included in this edition of the best-known works of Jules Verne. They have a double appeal. On the one hand, they rank with the classic adventure stories of Rudyard Kipling, G. A. Henty, and H. Rider Haggard, and on the other they are as much a part of everyone's literary background as Tom Sawyer or Treasure Island.
The famous tales of Jules Verne are among the classic examples of scientific prophecy. At the time they were first published, they seemed the wholly impossible product of a too vivid imagination. Today we are not surprised at submarines and aeroplanes and rockets and we have surpassed even his prophecies of speedy travel.
But we have not yet caught up with the prophecies of Jules Verne. Some of the activities of Captain Nemo of the good submarine Nautilus in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will seem beyond the reach of human ingenuity, and our efforts with rocket ships are still only experimental. In many ways, Jules Verne is still in advance of the times, and the excitement and action of these stories remain a unique portion of the literature of scientific adventuring."
